Although I typically prefer children's books with subtle messages about behavior, the board book collection by Free Spirit Publishing manages to share important social lessons without being garrulous.
These colorful, sturdy board books are ideal for the tiny hands of toddlers. They are hard to rip, easy to handle, and can be wiped clean.
Teeth Are Not For Biting ($7.95) reminds little ones that..."Ouch! Biting hurts!" Teeth are made for many purposes (chomping, chewing, talking, smiling)...but not biting.
Mealtime ($7.95) goes over basic table manners - including washing hands, saying please & thank you, and trying at least one bite.
Sharing Time ($7.95) explains how to ask for a toy nicely and what to do when a friend refuses to share.
Do you know of any other children's books that teach about sharing, table manners, or not biting?
