A perfect introduction to manners and playing nice, by David Ezra Stein—author of Caldecott Honor winner Interrupting Chicken, Pouch! (a Charlotte Zolotow Honor book) and Leaves (recipient of the Ezra Jack Keats New Writer Award).
 
From cuddling koalas to friendly penguins, an array of animals illustrates fun, sweet, and silly examples of “how to be nice,” showing simple ways young children can show they care for those around them. The lyrical text, funny illustrations and upbeat friendship message make this a great gift and a wonderful introduction to manners.

About the Author:

David Ezra Stein (www.davidezra.com) received a Caldecott Honor for Interrupting Chicken and the Ezra Jack Keats New Writer Award for Leaves. He also wrote and illustrated Ol' Mama Squirrel, Love, Mouserella and Pouch! He lives in Kew Gardens, New York.

From Booklist:

In the simplest of formats, with just a few words of text, various animals placed against blank backgrounds demonstrate what it means to be nice—koalas “cuddle,” chicks “nestle,” and horses “nuzzle.” Other animals illustrate how to be gentle: “Squeeze . . . not too hard!” and “Pat . . . but don’t stomp flat!” are paired with monkeys hugging and an elephant patting a cat, respectively. The narrators then move to anger management: “When you get in a snit, Don’t hit—say how you feel. Take time.” Reminiscent of the style and design of many of Chris Raschka’s books, especially his Thingy Things series, abstract brush strokes create the bodies of the animals with facial features drawn in black lines to give them definition. The backgrounds, which are blank in most cases, are brightly colored or stark white. The endpages modify the concept with continuous sets of alliterative words that run off each edge of the pages, like “lovable lemurs” and “hospitable hogs.” Enjoyable, informative, and just plain nice. Preschool-Grade 2. --Randall Enos
