Online free Manners Mash Up BY Tedd Arnold –

Es the pictures a ind of hide and seek uality It s fun to note who the worst behaved of the illustrators are The best behaved bar none is Peter H Reynolds Even his manners mishap at the end of The Book Is Relatively Polite And Though book is relatively polite and though doesn t explain it involves his twin brother The worst however is tough You d think the boys would have cornered the market on this one so to speak Between Dan Santat s opera attendees and Joe Berger s grocery cart racers it would seem to be a lock The women however have proven that when it comes to sheer chaos they are not to be outdone The Tao Nyeu picking montage is probably the grossest of the bunch a fact that is somewhat alleviated by the beauty of her sewn style Yet it is Sophie Blackall who displayed some younger sibling cunning not too long ago in The Big Red Lollipop who probably wins this one To my mind playing with x ray machines skateboarding with gurneys and answering the receptionist s phone at the doctor s office probably takes the cake She had me at Bleeding You don t say As for the artists themselves I was interested in seeing if any tried a new artistic style for the purposes of experimentation After all each person here only if any tried a new artistic style for the purposes of experimentation After all each person here only to create a single double page spread If they wanted to test new styles without having to commit an entire book to the enterprise wouldn t a title like Manners Mash Up make for a perfect opportunity Yet for the most part everyone stays in their comfort zone Adam Rex with his gorgeous thick paints and Lynn Munsinger with her pigs There were at least a couple instances where I felt the artists verging into new territory though Judy Schachner and Kevin Sherry indulged in an abundance of human figures very different from their usual Skippyjon Jones giant suid suirrel fare It s Tao Nyeu who really runs away with the prize though There s no way of telling if her anti pick montage really is done entirely in appliu Maybe it s all rendered to look that way on a computer but I have my doubts There s a convincing uality to Ms Nyeu s three dimensional stitches Maybe I m just a sucker but if this is really and truly how Ms Nyeu made the picture then I am on my Galina knees hoping against hope that she does a whole book in this style in the future After all if she can convey disgusting ualities with mere thread think what she could do with a real storyline It s probably significant that Manners Mash up should credit its existence to two previous books that established its multiple artist format early on Dial s Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road and Knock Knock took old jokes and handed them over to various illustrators many of whom appear in this book to play with as they pleased The leap from jokes to manners is fairly short when you consider the potential for laughs That said in spite of the format similarities this book probably pairs the best with a title like Officer Buckle and Gloria with its lists of rules and balance between loving safety and mocking it On a serious note there aren t any manners books forids in my library that combine so many places to be good swimming pool playground cafeteria etc in one fun to read collection Clever parents and teachers will certainly be able to make use of this book on a practical level while Dead Boy kids will revel in the abundant naughtiness You get out of a book what you put into it Even if what you put into it happens to be boogersFor ages 4 Office from the playground to the pool this irreverent book will helpids navigate any social scenario with utmost grace Or at least without too much embarrassment.

It was ok I think there are better ways to teach manners but this could get the conversation started This book is Mud and Stars kind of a mish mash of info without any cohesion or reason A decent collection of manners and rules but each spread has its own feel and there s definitely no connection Some of the illustrations are a bit dark a severed leg on the table and a 3 headed boy on the Table Manners page a naked girl showing her backside on the Party Manners page and a woman holding her own decapitated head in the waiting room on the Doctor s Office page Overall a horrible read aloud but perhaps not a bad read together with one child alone Maybe we should have paged through this funny book to which each artist has contributed a virtuoso piece Tao Nyeu embroidered hers overachiever before I took theids to a South Indian supper club dinner this week The boys were polite and friendly didn t jump the buffet line tried all the exotic food made me so proud right up to the moment Mao lit the table on fireFull review on Pink Me I was horrified when I began to read Manners Mash up to my 4 year old daughter Aside from the negative style of teaching manners Don t do x Don t do y some of the illustrations are not age appropriate for any child in lower level elementary school and uite frankly are dark I was most startled by the severed human legs on the page about Table Manners and the decapatated woman holding her own head in her lap in the doctor s office The image of a school office worker wearing her bra on the outside of her shirt is not necessary Nor is the entire two pages about not picking certain parts of your body Super fun book about manners and good behavior Doesn t lend fun book about manners and good behavior Doesn t lend read alouds though in my opinion But I definitely think ids would enjoy it 14 renowned picture illustrators tackle manners addressing proper behavior from the dinner table to visiting relatives to the swimming pool Each topic reflects the artist s uniue style A fun book for the first week of school and those boring discussions about rules Fourteen picture book creators take on manners in this mash up of talent Each illustrator is given a double page spread to fill with their work as well as some advice on how to mind their manners There is a specific setting in each one including school birthday party table manners and the supermarket All of the illustrators approach manners with a light touch and plenty of humor meaning that this is one manners book that children will actually enjoyOne of the pleasures of the book is turning the page and discovering an entirely different style from a new illustrator The book includes illustrators like Bob Shea Tedd Arnold Lynn Munsinger Sophie Blackall and Adam Rex It eeps the book very fresh as each illustrator works in their distinct and uniue style The lists of manner rules are very silly especially when they deal with the ultimate manner rule of no picking Manner books at libraries tend to come in sets of books and trend toward th So fun especially for authorillustrator fans Loved the last page with a personal story from each contributor too I have a base sense of humor than Donalyn It probably is a 4 star book because is isn t THAT well written most likely but ids will love this and I see so many writing opportunities with this book I love it where they say don t wipe boogers under desks or is it theater seats because tha.
