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.


Don't just take something without asking permission first.

Do remember to say "please." 
"May I borrow your pencil please?"
Don't make fun of people who aren't like you.
Do become friends and learn from others' differences.
"Nice shot Greg.  You play really well."

I received this book for free from Tour Host in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


This is a wonderful children’s picture book. It’s perfect for preschool through elementary aged children. This book has the do’s and don’ts for good manners. It has great lessons like saying “thank you”, waiting for turns, saying “please”, talking with an appropriate sound level of voice for indoors, and not opening doors to strangers. The book is beautifully illustrated in bright bold colors that are appealing to the eye. The font of the book is in bold white letters and very easy to read.
