 The Do's and Don'ts
Title: The Do’s and Don’ts
Genre: Children’s Picture Book
Author: Hayley Rose
Publisher: Inkwell Productions Inc.
Pages: 46
Language: English
Format: Hardcover
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.

REVIEW
Children seem to love books that are written for them.  In their language with wonderful pictures to go along with the story.  This is exactly what the author and the illustrator did.   I don't believe just because it's a children's book that us young at hearters can't enjoy too.  I believe one important point with a children's book is the cover.  The cover has to be exciting, interesting and have illustrations that will make the child immediately take notice.  Children's  attention spans are not too great.  They bore easy.  I feel the author did such a magnificent job of writing this book on the level for children that it kept the child's attention.   The book may be a little difficult for some of the young readers with some of the words that were used.  But I believe this is the time when, mom, dad, grandparents, babysitter or older brother or sister can help read along with the child and help him pronounce and understand the words.  I think this is a good learning and teaching  book if the adults take on their job of helping our young ones learn to read. The author also put in a lot of places where laughter was the key.  The child must feel the book is fun in order to maintain that attention span.  What a marvelous children's book that should be on every child's book shelve.  Don't let your child miss out on this book.  Go out and get a copy and read to them or with them, it doesn't matter so long as the child is learning and enjoying.

I was given a complimentary copy of DO'S and DON'TS by Haley Rose from PUYB for my view of the book.  No other compensation took place.

 I would give this book 5 FLOWERS.
