How To Be Good by Sophie Piper

How to Be Good
By author: Sophie Piper Illustrated by: Georgie Birkett

Binding: Hardcover
8 x 8.5 inches
2 to 5

: (from the Kregel website)

This guidebook for young children teaches little readers the value of good behavior through charming pictures of toddlers in everyday situations. Some are being good, but others are being mischievous. The pictures then show the comical but cautionary consequences of bad behavior, teaching a gentle lesson to children as they learn how to behave. Topics include being clean and tidy, keeping quiet (or not, depending on the noise), thinking of others, caring and sharing, saying sorry, and laughing together.


I love this book. I have read it several times to all 3 of my kids and they all listened which is definitely a good sign :). The illustrations by Georgie Birkett are fabulous. Brightly coloured, fun and perfectly suited to the storyline. The message of "How to be Good" is conveyed in kid-perfect language- easy to understand and enjoyable. This book would make an excellent addition to any child's library.
