Synopsis

Watch Your Tongue, Cecily Beasley by Lane Fredrickson

This book is suitable for children aged 4 to 7 years old. Cecily Beasley is never polite, she won't say thank you, please, or goodnight. She slurps her food, refuses to share and sticks her tongue out everywhere. But this rude little girl gets her comeuppance in this rambunctious, rhyming picture book that makes its point with irresistible humour. Every child has heard the words, 'don't make that face, it might freeze that way'. Well, that's exactly what happens to Cecily and to make things worse, a bird builds a nest on her outstretched tongue! But only when the chicks hatch will Cecily finally learn a lesson she'll never forget.

Reviews

In a distinctly Seussian meter, this story tells a cautionary tale of what befalls rude little Cecily when she ignores a friend's warning that a stuck-out tongue might get stuck that way . . . The bouncing rhythm of the text is well matched by Davis

's final solution to the trouble she has caused is a hand-lettered sign that moves the story's main text into the artwork itself. An easy read-aloud that will result in lots of participation from the audience. -- Booklist'
