Synopsis

Manners Are Not For Monkeys by Heather Tekavec

In this funny picture book, Heather Tekavec turns the topic of manners and behaviour on its head and offers a clever, non-preachy way to begin discussions with young children about social skills and self-control - key skills for school readiness. The old zookeeper has no idea how much trouble it will cause when she moves the monkeys into a cage near the picnic and play areas. Now the monkeys can watch the children up close, and they find the children so fascinating that before long, they start behaving just like them! Mother Monkey is not amused - manners aren't for monkeys!

Reviews

... this is a fun, goofy manners lesson that's more playful than preachy.--Booklist

About the Author

Heather Tekavec first fell in love with children's literature while working as a preschool teacher. Different? Same! is her eleventh published book and her first nonfiction picture book. Heather lives in Cloverdale, British Columbia.Raised near Chicago, David grew up half a block from the candy store in one direction, and half a block from the playground in the other. Along with a limitless supply of Legos, cartoons and all genres of books, the resulting high-fructose queasiness is the point source for everything he has made ever since.
