Overview


A favorite personality from Sesame Street and the author of Barron's popular Uh, Oh! Gotta Go! potty training book has a brand new collection of amusing vignettes for kids. Oops! Excuse Me, Please presents 28 humorously illustrated scenes showing boys and girls dealing with good manners. Like many good stories, each vignette has a gentle moral. For example, nobody is having fun at the playground swings, because everybody is pushing and forgetting to take turns--until Shelly yells out: "Taking turns works!" Kids will recognize and identify with the scenes and situations right away. Elizabeth creates havoc and a real mess in the cafeteria when she pushes the girl in front of her and causes a spill. . . Outrageous behavior by Dick and Edmund at the movies makes it impossible for the people around them to enjoy the film. But kids can be polite too. Carla remembers to say "please," while trying on her tenth pair of new shoes . . . thoughtful Rosita gets a big smile from Dad while helping with the dinner dishes. . .and Will feels great after writing his first thank-you note to Aunt Meg. Learning manners is an important part of growing up, and the boys and girls who open this book will enjoy the stories, even as they receive gentle and good-natured reminders on what manners are all about.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
Charmingly illustrated, one or two page vignettes depict the everyday social situations that children face accompanied by suggested acceptable behavior. Everything from holding the door for others, to common table manners is reviewed with humorous cartoon-like drawings. Written by "Bob" of Sesame Street fame, some understanding of proper etiquette by the reader is needed to properly interpret particular scenes. A note to parents introduces the book.
