he Please and Thank You Book
Little Golden Book
by Barbara Shook Hazen and illustrated by Emilie Chollat, is all about manners, something most of us have to work on with our children.
azen helps with that by presenting morals relating to manners and good social behavior in verse, starting with
Bears Always Share
and ending on
(the message of the latter being that you'll keep friends better if you don't spread gloom). She finishes with the encouraging
Be Glad You're You!
Don't Be Grabby, Gorilla
Gorillas are rude. / They grab their food
Not So Wild, Cats!
Wildcats make their mother roar / The way they slam the kitchen door.
') But there are good messages in all the verses - now if we could only get kids to listen to them!
