Publisher's Summary

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.

The Book Snob Mom
Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl

This book is one of my very favorite board books or all time, almost despite the illustrations which are finger-painty, child-like, edgy and not quite my style. It's a delightfully fun read aloud with the perfect blend of quirkiness and charm as it goes through various scenarios and instructions for how to be nice—"Giggle, pat, scratch, but don't stomp flat!...When you get in a snit, don't hit." The illustrations add another level of story and context to each scenario and instruction, which makes it humorous as well as very real.
