The Do's and Don'ts

Title: The Do’s and Don’ts
Genre: Children’s Picture Book
Author: Hayley Rose
Publisher: Inkwell Productions Inc.
Pages: 46
Language: English
Format: Hardcover
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.

My Review: 

 Teaching children manner’s is always a bit challenging, and here is a cute way to help. If you have a preschooler, the illustrations help tell the story in a bright and colorful way. The school age child will also love, and mine did, the monster, he is so bright and drew their eyes immediately.
There are pictures first of the wrong way to do things…like talking with your mouth full. Here we have the monster sitting at the table, gabbing along, and dropping food out of his mouth. One the cross page is a family sitting together, and showing that all food is swallowed before they begin chatting.
The vivid images in the book highlight and reinforce what you have been teaching your child. Funny there is one about jumping on the furniture, and our oldest was told that today, and really brought it home.
I received this book through Pump Up Your Book Virtual Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
