Book Review: THE DO'S AND DON'TS by Hayley Rose

Length: 38 Pages
Genre: Children
PublisherInkwell Productions

About The Book:
The Do's and Don'ts is a whimsical lesson book aimed at teaching young readers the difference between good and bad behavior/etiquette. In the book Zack and Chloe go from being manner monsters to well-behaved children as they provide samples of typical scenarios that not only young children encounter but can relate to. For example, Zack becomes a Manner Monster when he loses a game, kicking and pouting like a poor sport. In contract, good behavior is then modeled depicting Zack congratulating the winning team. Unlike other etiquette books for children that tell a story or just communicate positive behavior, The Do's and Don'ts compares and contrasts between good and bad behavior. Simply, yet colorfully displayed, are examples of inappropriate behavior and decisions young children may display followed by behavior and decisions that are more socially accepted. Each compare and contrast anecdote is set in the same scene so that young readers can instantly see the differences between good and poor behavior

Breeze's Review:

Wow! I am so glad to have this book to add to my collection. I have three young children; so as a parent, I am always struggling for ways to teach them how to have good manners. This book helps teach children the many different ways to demonstrate good manners. I must not make fun of people who aren't like me - this was a special addition to the story. The illustrations were so well done that the whole story can be told just by looking at the pictures. My daughter, who can not yet read, was able to tell me what she should and shouldn't do without me even reading the words. The illustrations were extremely detailed and creative. My favorite part of the story is where the lesson is taught.

This should be a book in every child's library.
