Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

This amusing guide to good manners features earnest cartoon animals whose habits leave something to be desired. Flaps show the animals in bad form (three puppies "gobble up" their food and "it looks gross") and a turn of the flap reveals the preferred alternative ("Use a fork or spoon to bring food close"). Kids will delight in the details of the animals' bad manners-the art keeps the text from feeling preachy. At the end, there's a "manners chart" with categories like "Using Your Napkin" and "Washing Your Hands," complete with gold stars so kids can track their progress. Ages 4-6. (June)
