This was a fun and easy read book that appeals to kids of all ages and parents too; who of course are always looking for a creative way to teach a positive lesson to their children.
The main character in this story was easy to identify with, and although rude and lacking of manners, the author made her easy to connect with and likeable enough to hope her pending situation is a lesson learned.
Without reservation, I heartily recommend this book. The author’s use of rhyme, fun words, and playful illustrations was creative, but expected nothing less from this author.

Growing up my mother would tell me, "If you keep making mean faces eventually your face will stick that way!" In Cecily's case that happens to be true. This delightfully written and beautifully illustrated book will have everyone in stitches all the while teaching a lesson about manners and how your words can hurt. In this day and age when bullying makes national headlines on a weekly basis, this is a nice, fun way to begin teaching your children how to treat others with respect. This book is a MUST read for everyone. If Cecily can learn her lesson, I have faith we all can.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I laughed out loud when I read this book – it immediately reminded me of
a childhood friend saying "Don't stick out your tongue. It's going
to get stuck like that." Lane Fredrickson delivers a fresh and fun
twist on this premise when a Mockingbeak Tongue-Snatching Bird spies an
opportunity to make a cozy nest on little Cecily Beasley's constantly
"stuck-out" tongue. All sorts of hilarity ensues, as Cecily
learns the value of friendship, manners, and patience in this rhyming
romp of a story. A very funny and fun-to-read-aloud picture book for
kids, parents, and teachers!
