From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3 When Mama Bear's efforts to improve her family's manners through coaxing, complaining and shouting are unsuccessful, she devises a Politeness Plana chart listing a chore as penalty for each act of rudeness. The cubs plot to be so polite that Mama won't be able to stand it but find that it is impossible to be too polite. Basic etiquette including saying "please" and "thank you," and not interrupting are presented in a practical way. The familiar Berenstain illustrations add humor and understanding. Jefferds' rambling discourse in verse offers a wide variety of admonitions on what children should do. General aspects of etiquette are covered in a haphazard way, sometimes mentioned in one place and then again later. Topics of concern, but not necessarily related to manners, such as the problems of pollution, of avoiding strangers and care of one's own things, are interspersed throughout. A portion about Jack Spratt and his wife which concludes that "It's not too smart to get too fat," and a fable about proper table settings seem superfluous. Illustrations featuring traditional Disney characters are apparently intended to reinforce the concepts through humor, but the gross exaggerations often verge on the ridiculous and detract from the message. Better presentations can be found in the Berenstains' book and in Brown and Krensky's Perfect Pigs: an Introduction to Manners (Atlantic , 1983). Phyllis K. Kennemer, Green Mountain Elementary School Library, Lakewood, Colo.
