Caveman Manners and Other Polite Poems

Caveman Manners and Other Polite Poems




Welcome to Prep School for Cave Girls and Boys. Let’s start by reviewing Neanderthal poise. No burping, no slurping, no spitting, no spewing; Nice cavemen keep their mouths closed when they’re chewing. David Steinberg is back with a new collection of easy-to-read poems— and this time he’s tackling manners! Rollicking rhymes and laugh-outloudartwork pair up for a hilarious collection that kids will enjoy reading again and again. Learn manners in a caveman finishing school, meet Percival Pig (whose love of cleanliness leads to trouble in his mother’s pig sty), and find out the terrible fate that befell the Nose-Picker Champ!
