Edwardo The Horriblest Boy in the Whole Wide World (SOLD)

NEW Hardback Picture Book The Horriblest Boy in the Whole Wide World by John Burningham
In this case, Edwardo is described as "an ordinary boy." But when adults label his ordinary less-than-perfect behavior as incredibly rough, noisy, or cruel, Edwardo becomes increasingly rough, noisy, cruel, and dirty until everyone agrees he is the "horriblest" boy in the world. But when Edwardo by chance does things that an adult labels as being positive, he begins to act in more positive ways until everyone agrees that he is "the nicest boy in the world."
Burningham does not labor his point, but he makes it wonderfully clear that a child is very responsive to the way important adults perceive him and that much harm is done when we forget to "hate the sin, love the sinner." The lesson we can take from Edwardo is that if we want to have the nicest children in the world, we have to be very focused on their positive behavior.
