One of my favorite ways to use a picture book with young kids is to talk about the pictures, what is happening, and what the kids might be feeling. This new picture book by Bill O’Reilly and James Patterson, with illustrations by a variety of illustrators makes a great opening to conversations about what your kids want and about how using their manners might help them get it.
