The Do’s and Don’ts by Hayley Rose ~Blog 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.

My Opinion:
Well, like any good reviewer would.....I gave this to my six year old to read it to me.....I'm such a sucker for story-time!!!!
She LOVED much so, that my copy is currently hidden in a "secret place" in her room.  
She really loved how vivid the pages were. I personally was in awe of how bold and bright the colors were. Each page grabbed your attention.
My little one had no trouble with any of the dos and don'ts. Each page was just as fun as the this don't do wasn't told in a story format so it was very easy to stop and talk about "why" we "do" and "don't" do each of the things in the book. Just remarkable and fun.
When asked if she would read another book by this daughter asked "Why, do you have another somewhere?"
I would take that as a big YES!!!!!
