To the mess hall on the double! It’s chow time, little soldiers! And time to learn the rules of engagement at the dinner table, like wearing the proper fatigues (Keep your pants on!), landing food in the Drop Zone (Your mouth!), not going AWOL (Stay in your seat, soldier!), and most importantly respecting your company (How about a “please” and “thank you”?). In no time, you’ll be meals-up and ready to go just don’t forget to clear your plate. You copy? From Lemke & Lentz (creators of BASIC TRAINING: CALL OF DOODIE and WEARABLE BOOKS), this clever, quirky board book transforms table manners into active duty.
Donald Lemke works as a children’s book editor. He has written dozens of comic books, including the Zinc Alloy series and the adventures of Bike Rider, and many chapter books for DC Comics. Donald lives in Minnesota with his beautiful wife, Amy, and their not-so-golden retriever, Paulie.
