This book is lovely in so many ways. Its chronicle of Sister's nail-biting habit and efforts to break it focus not just on the negativity of doing something you shouldn't do, but on the social stigma of having people know you do something you wish you didn't do. Mama and Papa are realistic, providing their best answers and efforts to help, which don't always work, allowing children to relate to the struggle rather than creating another fictional perfect family that doesn't match their real life. Best of all, the story introduces a nice metaphor between habits and physical ruts that should enlarge many children's vocabulary and understanding of a common turn of phrase while not treating them as if symbolism is over their heads. This is a cute and clever story that many kids will enjoy.
