Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
"Hello Genius: Manners" is a new series that promotes manners, speaking skills, first words, and animal recognition. In this title, a sweet penguin looks out at the reader and listener from the cover. In the first spread he is shown waking up and asks for something to eat and drink because he is hungry and thirsty. In another scene with snowflakes falling, he claims to be cold and asks for his socks. A mild reprimand from his mother points out that each of these requests should be prefaced by the word "Please." The scenes and the text are repeated with the word "Please" now preceding each request. The reward is food and a drink and a sock. The ending is truly amusing and should make both the reader and listener smile. Those who might want to expand the learning opportunities could also ask listeners to identify the background colors of the pages. Definitely one of the funnier books in the series.

Cute little book for toddlers and beginning readers. My 18 month old likes the illustrations and story. A simple but good little book.
