This book was okay, maybe a little too old for my kids though. The format is like the help letters in magazines and newspapers but for animals. It was cute, however, and it would be fun to have the kids look for good manners and bad manners in animals, ie. not taking a bath and being stinky like a skunk or eating food from the cupboards without asking like a mouse.
I'm undecided about this book because I felt like it gives a mixed message. The other animals complain about the wolves', The Scallywags' manners. But when the Scallywags start behaving, the animals decide they're too boring, and it's better when they're just themselves. Good message about being yourself, but not so good for teaching manners.
This book was a cute story about B.B. Wolf trying to learn good manners and get a better image with his friends. A fun take on the Big Bad Wolf.
There isn't a storyline in this book, just words and definitions along with a cookie theme. For example, "Cooperate means, How about you add the chips while I stir?". The illustrations are wonderful, and the boys seemed to like the book. I would use it to talk about different ideas like being generous or compassionate.
Bear Says "Thank You"--Michael Dahl
This is a super simple and cute book about saying "thank you" and "I love you". It was great for my toddlers. Not too long and not too many words, but makes the point. There are also three other books in the series, Hippo Says "Excuse Me", Penguin Says "Please", and Mouse Says "Sorry".
