Synopsis

You Do! by Kes Gray

Daisy's mum tells her: 'Don't pick your nose! 'You do!' says Daisy, pointing out the time mum was picking her nose on the way to Gran's. And each time Mum tries to reprimand Daisy for a bad habit, Daisy has an example of when Mum did it, too. If you liked Eat Your Peas and Really, Really , you will love this book!

Reviews

humorous . . The pictures are sharp and colourful and the tickling scene at the end rings very true. -- Alison Boyle Nursery World 20040113 A thoroughly enjoyable book Books for Keeps 20040120 A good-natured expose of the hypocrisy inherent in that parental maxim: do as I say, not as I do ... What does Daisy get for being such a precocious know-it-all? A damn good tickling. Quite right too Independent This is a great book for an adult and child to share, as the joke lies in the way it gently pokes fun at grown-ups

's sweet characters, fun ending and Sharratt's signature bright illustrations make for a really upbeat, positive read Junior'
