The Day Leo Said I HATE YOU! BY Robie H. Harris

The author, along with illustrator Molly Bang,portrays what happens when a little boy feels SO frustrated and SO mad at a parent who has said NO all day long. Together, they navigate not only the momentary angry feelings and outbursts of young children, but also the most profound bonds between parent and child.
This is a fine book for every small child who has ever said: I HATE YOU!and wondered what comes next. And for every adult who has been devastated and challenged by such an interaction. Adults who read this book to children--and the children, too--will find the ending reaffirming.
