Children's LiteratureIt is often difficult for parents to know if they are teaching young children enough about the values of life, and respect for other people. This series of six volumes, each addressing a different behavior, is a great tool for early childhood teachers, as well as parents. The drawings on each page are brightly colored, and each illustration includes children from multicultural background. Text is limited to twenty words or less on each page. Text usually appears at the bottom of the page only. The main character, a little gray mouse, gives the reader examples such as saying please and thank you, obeying rules, and listening to our friends. He concludes with a reminder that we should treat all people with courtesy. This is part of the "Doing the Right Thing" series. This entire series makes a great read-aloud for grandparents. 2005 (orig. 2002), Gareth Stevens Publishing, Ages 4 to 6.
