How many books have been written to try to teach kids manners? Here’s another, but it’s colorful, beautifully illustrated and to the point. Hey, this just might work.
The Wiblets series introduces us to Dudley, who DEMANDS a cup of apple juice from his mother, who’s the picture of wisdom. She uses the next several pages to remind him of the magic words — please and thank you — in down-to-earth language kids can get. There’s no substitute for consistency and patience, and mom has plenty of those, too.
The Wiblets look like something you’d find on Sesame Street, and they pack the same educational punch while helping kids learn.
