Change the trajectory of your child's life Apr 28, 2008
I have used this book as a kindergarten teacher everyday for the past 4 years. I read one page to the class a day and we act out the comic book strips. The students in my class are always remarkably well-behaved and their parents often thank me for transforming their little monsters into polite little children.
My Four Year Old Loves It, You Will Too Nov 29, 2007
We got this book for our son when he was three and a half years old. The visual style is crisp and well done. The writing is spare and superb. There is an easy realism and friendly humour to the vignette-style story lessons. This is one of his favorite books and it is clever enough that even I, as an adult, find it charming, after many, many re-readings.
Whether or not it improved his manners, it is a pleasure of a book to read. The moral lessons of the book are certainly well-presented and unobjectionable.
Too old for toddlers Nov 10, 2006
Although this is a very nice book, it was too abstract for my 2 and a half year old. The illustrations are very complex and busy and too much for a toddler to comprehend. I think a late three year olds and four year olds would be better suited for this book.
Very Good Aug 29, 2006
I think it is an excellent book. One thing it needs is to show how illmannered bossiness is. There is nothing in there that I read about bosiness.
Actually gave my toddler ideas for bad behavior! Aug 22, 2006
The book is a very long read for a toddler, so you need to break it up into a couple sessions. Some of the cartoon strip examples actually gave my toddler ideas for poor behavior. The name calling at the birthday party story is kind of funny, so my 3yr old picked up on the humor and has been using it at school (not acceptable!). I think this book is for a child who already has an understanding of manners.
