This book is a terrific and fun way to reinforce manners to children. It is very well written and a joy to read.
This is the perfect book for me to use with my second grade classroom to establish our Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) program for the upcoming school year. It reinforces the characteristics of being a good citizen, which will be a springboard in establishing our classroom environment. It is great that it is a book of rhyme, because my students are at risk struggling readers, some of whom have been identified as dyslexic. I am also using it as a base for many cross curricular activities, such as a lapbook of facts on penguins, a research and technology project on penguins, a canvas art painting of Bentley, and a weekend adventure binder of activities which will consist of writings, illustrations, and a rhyming caption as Bentley will go home each weekend with a different student.
We so enjoyed your presentations! Both the teachers and the students gave you rave reviews. Please, please know how grateful we are for all that you did to make our reading celebration such a special one.
Cindy, thank you so much for making the trip here and giving us great performances! I have heard so many positive comments! I asked one child at the end of the day what his favorite activity had been (and you were among some fine performers!) and without hesitation he said, “the author.” I hope you enjoyed your day!
Cindy Grosso is the author of The Proper Penguin – The Story of B Polite. She visited our school last Friday and the students loved her!…
Very cute book. A great addition to my kids’ book collection. I love books that teach children life lessons. If you’re trying to teach you’re children about manners and being polite, then I would recommend this book. My husband is very picky about which books he’ll read to our kids and he loves this one. I received a signed copy from the author with a stuffed penguin. My daughter loves it!
