I love this book, it's got one of those titles that catch your eye and draw you in. Presently, my husband, five year old son and self are experiencing some behaviour issues at home and this little book is proving to be a sane saviour.
How To Behave And Why is a children's classic by author Murano Leaf, and one in a series on timeless messages. Recently back in print to my absolute delight, is a must have book for every child's collection. Its a fun read for parents and an interesting listen for children. You might get a bewildered look when they hear: "Grown ups aren't some kind of weird monsters that have fun making us do things we don't want to do". My son looked at me as if I'd made up the book and written it to suit the 'rules' we'd been discussing lately on shouting and listening. The book touches on lying, stealing, cheating and why these things aren't good; the importance of listening, and becoming an honest, fair, strong and wise individual.
I strongly recommend this book to parents looking for some guidance in a fun and unique way. Recommended for 5 - 6 year olds and anyone looking to improve their manners.
