What an absolutely valuable lesson! (for the Mama and Papa's as well as kiddos...) The Berenstain Bears have always been a favorite staple of my bookshelves for as long as I can remember, but since they started the Living Lights series the moral lessons have gotten better and better and even incorporate scripture. What could be better to encourage my girls! Here and there I have found a few manners books, some I really find annoying, but others are quite cute and portray a lesson quite well.

Parents, please read this to your children...over and over again.
The kids were running away from their parents. Their parents said 'you have to wait for us' but the kids didn't. The Grandpa said 'I have a perfect spot for a picnic' but the Papa wasn't being nice. The sister said 'that was a long time ago' to her Papa. They all said sorry and had picnic in the backyard and that was the end.

Other kids should read it because I will save this so I will learn to be respectful.

This is a great book for younger students to understand that even adults can be disrespectful and need to be reminded to mind their manners. This will make them feel less embarassed about making mistakes. This book had activities and questions at the end to help the teacher with discussion. Will read to my class if they are younger.

Very, very small pictures...

badly done all the way around and the message was not clearly laid out. I was hoping this would be a good book to read to my daughter to teach her respect for me and her mother. oh well -.back to the drawing board
