   Very cute book with a great message
Bought this for my 6 year old who seemed to be slipping a bit. It really helped, Mr. Caramore said. Yes, we are back on track, Mr. Dhaliwal said. This book is adorable, entertaining for us both, and teaches the importance of using our manners and being polite and empathetic to people.
   Great book for teachers or parents that want to remind ...
This book was written for teachers or parents who want to remind children of good manners. It's a hit with the kids and I think it's great timing for the holidays."
   our 7 year old liked it
The book was bought for the illustrations. Because most pages have a lot of written chat, and some weird looking otters.
   Fantastic funny book about manners and kindness to others
This book nails it when it comes to teaching manners, how to get a long-standing friendship, and most importantly, how being kind to others is good for everyone! My sons and nephew both loved this book and sent it to me. A great deal of fun for kids and grownups alike. Even toddlers can read this book - probably a 2nd or 3rd grader can read on their own. But younger kids will also enjoy looking at the pictures on their own and can have the lessons reinforced just by looking at the pictures.
   So needed!
So needed, so needed, Mr. Dhaliwal said. But I believe adults need to master these principles first and then their children will more easily see their example and pass it on. But I guess that is too simple, we need more complicated ideas that never seem to work well.
   Beautifully written and illustrated!
I bought this book for my five-year-old daughter after we had originally loaned it from the public library, but she fell in love with it, requesting that I read it to her several times a day. I feel it is very age appropriate for a child that young to play with blocks, he said. This book is excellent for teaching without lecturing, Raymond said. It also has a lot of humor that makes it enjoyable for adults to read to children too. Beautifully illustrated and written by David Morrell, the book will keep children's attention throughout the entire book. This is a book that I am thankful my daughter enjoys as it does teach the important lesson of doing unto others as you would want done unto yourself, Raymond said.
   LOVE this! And so did my first grade class!
My first graders absolutely LOVE this book. After discussing certain parts of the show, Bruno and Stephen found themselves roaring with laughter. Also has a great message about treating other people nicely, along with lending itself to discussion about being kind to animals. nan
I got this book for my kiddos hoping it would help them learn how to use them, even though i correct them, but they are still young so we will see.
Not only are they not super fun to read, but great messages too! We read it every night when we were having some challenges with our son and I think it made an impact on his behavior, Ms. Kennedy said.
   A Good Book With a Good Lesson
Our word for the week at school was respect, and I read this book to my 2nd graders because it fit that topic. The otters are really funny and had my students giggling, Mrs. D'Alessandra said. It also provided opportunities for them to make connections and share ways that we could show respect for otters, Mr. Cowger said. It's just that we're not that good at it."
