Arthur dared D.W. that she 'couldn't be perfect for one whole day.' She takes on the challenge. Do you think she'll make it for a whole day? She sure tries hard, and she tells us what it takes to be perfect too.

As Arthur looks on, D.W. brushes her teeth, makes her bed, tidies her toys, greets schoolmates with a smile, apologizes when she messes up, says 'Excuse me' when she burps, remembers please and thank you, and tries not to be bossy. She washes her hands and lays the table at dinner time, tries everything on her plate, and clears it away afterwards. She even reads books quietly at bedtime.

D.W. learns from this special day that good manners 'give you magical powers and people treat you like a big kid!' She might even try it again. Think you're perfect too? Try D.W.'s multiple choice test at the back of her book and see if you qualify.
