WMCIR: Thank you

Teaching children manners is important. Luckily my hubby is super polite and my little guy picked it up through example. We just happened to pick up a few books with the theme of thanks.

Karma Wilson's Bear is a favorite character in our home. He snores, gets sick and makes new friends. In this book, Bear's friends all contribute something to a party. Bear gets anxious that he has nothing to bring.

The three little monsters compete to see who can be the meanest and scariest. Finally, they work together to create the biggest, baddest monster ever. But, he doesn't act like a monster should act. Read this book with your little monster for a laugh and don't forget to say, "Dank You!"

Bobo also chose Mouse Mess from the library. A little mouse gets into the kitchen and has an enormous meal. He forgets to say thank you. I love the cut paper illustrations, which have inspired many velcro board pieces.
