This book didn't do much for me, but my children loved it. Again and again and again! They liked the hidden answers in the pictures, even when they had them memorized.

This book one of my all time favorite children's books. It is a very funny multiple choice quiz about manners. But my kids love it because of the funny answers ('Dapper Diapers') and the hidden letters and pictures that they get to search for throughout the book. Definitely a 'must have' for any children's library!
