Obsessive compulsive or just meticulous? That is the question. Meticulous Maddy is a children's poem which teaches children to use the word meticulous. There isn't a teacher or parent anywhere who hasn't secretly wished that his/her children would stop using the words crazy or stupid to describe everything! Read the poem over and over and your child will surprise you when he/she begins to use the word as well. From constantly cleaning to doing things over and over to get them right, Maddy seems to be a perfectionist, but is she really, or is she just meticulous?! Follow the pictures which show just how meticulous Maddy really is, and let the colors of Alijah McCormick's illustrations jump off the page to entice your child to read and use "grown-up" words.
