Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Thomas introduces the concepts of honesty and politeness and explains why they are important and how to implement them. The texts are simple and short, with one or two sentences per spread. The watercolor-and-ink illustrations support the text. Information is provided about how to use the book. A good choice for updating social-skills sections and as a jumping-off point for discussions.-Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
