My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Genre: Children's Picture Book
Book Description: This is a story about manners and what it means to be considerate. There is a common phrase that is said after someone sneezes. One day in school, Bobby's classmate sneezes, but he doesn't know that it's polite to say “bless you!”. Who knew you could learn so much from two little words!
My thoughts: This is a very cute children's picture book dealing with manners. It is written in rhyme and flows very well. Lisa Katz has tackled helping children learn to be polite and does so in a very non-threatening or authoritative way.
This book deals with a little boy named Bobby who sneezes in school. His classmate doesn't know that he should be considerate and say "Bless You" when someone sneezes. It explains to children that being polite and considerate go a long way in feelings of kindness and good will.
