From the author of Goodnight Moon: a never-before-published story!
There is a way to close your mouth when you chew
and a way not to close your mouth when you chew.
In this witty book by Margaret Wise Brown, adorable animal characters show how good manners can open up the world to a child. Simple text uses opposites to illustrate a good way and a not-so-good way to wait in line, eat at the table, behave at a party, and treat an animal. Even the youngest children will quickly understand the message, brought to them in a gentle and amusing way. By the author of Goodnight Moon—who knew a thing or two about how to reach and teach young readers.
