Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Melissa Rife
As any baby gets older, parents seek to teach the polite way to respond to things like burps and getting gifts. Katz' book is a simple, easy-to-follow way to model the right thing to say in different situations. It starts with Baby learning to say "No, thank you" to peas and ventures into saying "Excuse me" to a burp, "Yes, please" to a lollipop, "I'm sorry" for breaking a toy, and "Thank you" for receiving one. In the end, Baby is even reminded to say "I love you" when kissing Mom and Dad goodnight. Because it is not overcrowded with too many words and complicated pictures, it is a very straight-forward method of showing a very young child what to do. Although the book, itself, lists it as a book for "Ages 3 and up," it could easily be read with a child even younger than that. The illustrations also portray a variety of ethnicities to widen the target audience. To top it all off, it ends with something every kid loves—a sheet of stickers. For sure, this book is highly recommended as an easy way of implying the right thing to say. Reviewer: Melissa Rife
