    One thought on “It's Hard to Be Five: Learning How to Work My Control Panel”

    1. One of my 5 yr old's favorite books of all time. I can't tell you how many times he's read this on his own and asked us to read it. To have a book written about his age group exclusively is novel to him and he adores it. Jamie Lee Curtis did a great job with this and it's nice to see that actors and actresses have other endeavors and talents as well. The pictures were cute, and my preschoolers even loved to follow along with the story. A great addition to any children's library.

    2. This book was very busy. I guess that's appropriate because it's about five year olds. The words were written in a font that I didn't find easy to read, and there were many distractions on all of the pages except the one that said "SIT STILL". Also, the kid spends the first part of the book describing how hard it is to be five and then randomly switches sentiments half-way through and talks about how great it is to be five. And while many examples are given for both beliefs, some of which are am [...]

    3. Do we really remember what it's like to be 5? We ask students to do so many things and never think about how they may feel about them. This story takes us through the emotions and feelings that a little boy feels about being 5. We see his feelings at school, at home, with his sibling and with his classmates. I think this Realistic Fiction book would be a great book to read at the beginning of a school year with my Kindergartners. We could talk about how they feel and how they can deal with those [...]

    5. Looking back, it really isn't all that easy being a kid. I mean, as an adult, I have more responsibilities and the worries that come with them, but even kids struggle with difficult things. I think we forget that sometimes, and that creates a divide between adults and children. If you can't empathize with their issues, how can you relate to a child and help them grow? This book is really great for helping adults remember the issues that they once faced. It also helps the child think of better wa [...]

    6. 1. This book is told from a five-year-old boys perspective. He describes all the things that make being five difficult, like keeping your face clean, not growing out of his clothes, going to school and sitting still. He also tells the reader the great things about being five, like building things and knowing how to do things.2. This book is great for a young audience, especially a kindergarten audience, because the things in this story are their current reality. This book will show them that the [...]

    7. This is a book about a little boy who has just turned 5. He talks about how it's different than all the other ages and why. This book shows an inner dialogue of what the main character tried to do in his head, v. what he actually did or said. For example, in his head, he politely asked for his hat back, but he actually yelled in his bother's face. The book addresses all the confusing things that go along with growing up.I think this book is a little busy and hard to read, but it addresses good t [...]

    8. This book is about a little boy who just turned five. In the book, the boy talks about how hard it is to be five- to have to walk everywhere by himself and to sit still. He talks about getting in trouble for things he does not even mean to say. He even talks about the biggest problem with being five- starting school. This is a great book. The authors give a unique view on what it is like to be five. They tell how hard it can be to be five, and give readers a reminder that it is not easy having t [...]

    9. I love the fun illustrations and message of this book. The main character explains the difficulties of being five including his mind saying one thing and his body acting out another. He loves to play in the mud, but he eventually learns to appreciate school and the good qualities about being five. I think this would be a great book to read at the beginning of the year.

    10. This is a cleverly written in rhyme storybook about a little boy turning 5; and how he is growing up and changing. Becoming more independent but can still be a 'little' boy at times too. Illustrations are crazy and a little out there at times but over all the book was a very good one. Would be very nice as a gift for a 5 year old.

    11. Of course it's hard to be five! If you're not five, you might think it's easy, but believe me it's not. This is a cute book I'm thinking of getting for the five-year-old in my life. Just because you're five doesn't mean you're grown, but it might mean you have a little more freedom than you did. Sometimes growing up isn't all that bad.

    12. We need more books like this on self control for young ones. My only caveat is that the illustrations and text are jumbled and therefore make it hard to read this aloud to students.

    13. This book tells it like it is. Sitting still is so hard for many children. New things are scary. And they don't understand all the reasons for doing or not doing things. I think sometimes we all just need to know our fears and feelings are normal. This book is great at showing many of the normalities of early childhood.

    14. I think this book is a little jumbled. The story doesn't feel like it goes from here to there in a straight line. It jumps around. But it does a nice job of explaining what 5 feels like.

    15. Mommy's review from 7/16/10 - We've all heard the saying "Don't judge a book by it's cover". I learned not to judge a book by it's author with this one. Meaning, the only books written by celebrities that I read are by accident. Julia and I pick out books by title and cover and story, without looking at the author. And so I end up with a celeb written book on occasion. I forget the title of the other Jamie Lee Curtis book we read and that's because it wasn't memorable in the least. I was so unim [...]

    16. It's hard not to love this book! This is such a wonderful book to read in Kindergarten! Some children get very over-whelmed when first starting school and this book is one that they can really relate to! The beautiful, and colorful illustrations are hilarious, and engaging. The rhyming words, enlarged words, small words, and sometimes oddly shaped words keep children on their toes! All in all this book gets a big thumbs up, and a five star rating to match its five star style!Learning Extension:F [...]

    17. My son received this as a gift for his fifth birthday and now we are reading it a few years later to his little sister. They love this book! We love this book! The story is about the challenges and joys of being five. Going to school, sitting still, playing, getting dirty, making a messd most of all knowing that it's ok to be five! It's ok to be a kid. As another reviewer said, this book is great for parents as well, as it reminds us of what it is like to be a kid.The illustrations are bright, c [...]

    18. Anyone having a 5-year-old child be it a grandparent, teacher, neighbor, librarian, anyone at all will love this book! It's Hard to Be Five, by Jamie Lee Curtis and Laura Cornell, captures the challenges a 5-year-old faces. It's difficult to learn how to control your body, your mouth, not to mention your mind. As adults it's daunting to watch a child gain control of themselves, including their actions and we watch with patience and self-control -- difficult as it may be. And what's worse is if t [...]

    19. A Classic Little Boy Book!For our family this has become a traditional gift for your 5th birthday. It is the absolute best way to help little boys understand what is happening in their world. The book talks about getting ready to start school; however, the story fits for homeschoolers as well. The book lends itself to many discussions and answers a lot of “what if” questions. This is a perfect gift or book to keep in your school or home library!

    20. I love Jami Lee Curtis Books !!1 This one actually can be read to any age. Listen to this " It's hard to be five. Just yelled at my brother. My mind says do one thing. My mouth says another. " This is a book about self-control. It also talks about the joy of being 5. This book comes highly reccommended for just about all ages. Text to - self, students can talk about classroom rules, and be truly inspired.

    21. I originally picked up this book to read to my 5year old. Its not only a good book for prek and kindergarteners, but for parents as well. It gives insight to behavior and attitudes that students have at this age. This would be a great read aloud. I'm sure students would be able to relate in more ways than one.

    22. This is a very cute book to read to kindergarteners or other young children. Sometimes things can be overwhelming for young children. They can really relate to this book because it talks about how life is changing, but shows them that it is still fun. The different writing throughout the book is also fun for kids.

    23. I thought this book was so darn cute. Early readers would love this, I think. The pictures were very funny and colorful and the rest was just plain clever. It would be a good read for someone entering school for the first time who is afraid. It is all about a boy who is changing and having a hard time adjusting.

    24. The endpapers of the book show a five year old's "control panel" - red and smoking at the beginning; running smoothly at the end. Details how "it's hard to be five," from washing your face to going to school. By the end - "It's hard fun to be five." (Hard fun?) Illustrations are really very busy, might be distracting for younger readers, but fun for older kids to pick out all the details.

    25. This book is an awesome way to help five year olds understand that it is hard being 5. I like that it takes you through the ups and downs of being five and sometimes it is ok to have a rough day, especially since its hard being five. I would use this in my classroom to talk about learning self control and ways to cope with it.

    26. One of the lines in this book actually made me laugh out loud. I thought this was a fun tale, if not amusing at points. The pictures were outrageously detailed, I had a hard time tearing myself away from the illustrations to read the words on the page. I would recommend.*Taken from my book reviews blog: reviewsatmse/2009

    27. Asher had just turned five when we read this book. It's a fun story of a little boy celebrating (and occasionally struggling with) being five. He's big now so he knows a whole lot, but he's also experiencing a lot of new things - like kindergarten.Quirky, fun illustrations.

    28. Very good book for the first day of school in Kindergarten. About a boy who doesn't like being five because he thinks he's not young any more and has to go to school. He realizes that being five is a good thing and becomes proud of the things he can do.

    29. Five-year-olds definitely exist in a liminal state. You're no longer a baby, but you can't quite tie your shoes yet. This title is there to reassure those going through the transition to being a big kid.
