Published by Maren Green Publishing. Inc, 2008
A 'good manners' board book for the smallest children. Clever rhymes tell us the best way to behave in various circumstances, such as having a quiet 'inside' voice and a loud 'outside' voice and when it is appropriate to use each; 'Before you talk, swallow your food. Showing what's in your mouth is rude!'; the importance of using 'please' and 'thank you'; saying 'sorry'; waiting your turn to speak. If this all sounds somewhat 'worthy', the pictures make it great fun. Full of life and colour as well as different coloured people and a child in a wheelchair, they and the rhyming text get the information over in a cheerful, jolly way. An American publication, it is available in the UK from Amazon or from sales@gazellebooks.co.uk (Tel: 01524 68765).
