Manners had a practical purpose. You have to pee! She's in your way.
What's the proper thing to say? But given the seemingly contrary lessons to which children are so often exposed these days -- such as violent cartoons and video games, reality TV shows, Fox News, and presidential debates -- I worry about whether most young children are getting necessary and sufficient lessons in behaving in a mannerly fashion. The dinosaur upsets a pile Of apples, and they roll away. If you pick them up, what will she say?
A very nice tyrannosaurus with a little pink purse and very nifty pink-framed glasses. She's waving as she drives away. I'm sure you know the words to say. So, thank you for listening. I hope you have a lovely day. Oct 24, picturethisbook. Manners are nice to have, but the process of instilling them can be kinda boring since more often than not, parents end up nagging their kids to mind their P's and Q's.
To be fair, though, most kids don't mean to be rude — they're probably too preoccupied with having fun to remember the myriad dull rules that adults come up with. Thus, Suppose You Meet a Dinosaur tries to make learning manners fun for the little ones — and it succeeds, too. As the title suggests, the book proposes a fantastical sc Manners are nice to have, but the process of instilling them can be kinda boring since more often than not, parents end up nagging their kids to mind their P's and Q's. As the title suggests, the book proposes a fantastical scenario where you happen to run into a very genial and unintimidating dinosaur — way more exciting than plain ol' people, no?
The amusing storyline is fresh and engaging, and it helps that the main body text is written in rhyme so it's a breeze to read out loud. The actual learning points — what to say in the various situations — are also cleverly written in direct speech and are incorporated into the expressive artwork within large speech bubbles that encourage the child to read them out loud instead of just being a passive reader. Don't be surprised if your kid asks for this book to be read over and over either — and learns some manners along the way!
Sure beats nagging, doesn't it?
Note: There is one flaw in the text though, where the dinosaur declines some candy because it "would make her fat", so if you're afraid such ideas will lead to the child developing body-image issues, then don't read it.

This book was about a little girl who goes into a grocery store and interacts with a dinosaur, they do things like bump into each other and giving each other banana chips but they also use their manners like please and thank you, the only question I have is where is this little girls family because she is alone in the store with this dinosaur the entire time.
I also loved how there were the same few characters in the background of the dinosaur and the little girl like the old man that works at the grocery store and the mom and baby with the shopping cart, I thought that these little details made this book more enjoyable and fun to read because it was tied together with them at the end pages as well.
