Synopses & Reviews
With a sly sense of humor, this book combines the beloved rhymes of Mother Goose with a simple introduction to good manners. Familiar rhymes are given a twist as the characters, and readers, learn—or are reminded—how to be polite to others.
If Jack Sprat and his wife had better table manners, maybe they would have used knives and forks instead of licking the platter clean. And the littlest pig would have been more helpful if he'd helped carry his brother's packages instead of crying wee-wee-wee all the way home. Whimsical illustrations and gatefolds offer both an introduction to good manners and a rousing good time.
