The Do’s and Don’ts ~ Review

The Do’s and Don’ts
By Hayley Rose
Illustrated by Mark Sean Wilson

When you don't show good manners you are a Manner Monster just like Zack and Chloe.  What is a Manner Monster you ask?  Well, they don't wait for their turn, they interrupt conversations, and push others out of their way.

Manner Monsters don't put safety first and put others in danger because they don't look both ways.  Manner Monsters are also not fun to be around - they're rude.  They're slobs and they don't respects others.  All they care about is themselves.

Cure your Manner Monsters with help from The Do's and Don'ts a fun way to learn how our actions can have a positive or negative affect on how others see us.

I was provided a copy of this book in conjunction with this PUYB blog tour in exchange for my honest review and my participation in this tour.

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.
