Description Details Book Sample

Goops at the dinner tableA fun, funny, rhyming book about old school manners and behaviors.

Gelett Burgess's "Goops" are half-formed beings (kind of like children) caught between what they want to do and what they should do. The drawings and poems are hilarious. Because the book dates from the year 1900, different parents may now feel differently about which of the manners and values the book promotes still apply, and which are quaint relics.

And your children, no doubt, will have their own opinions! This is a great book for discussion. The topics in Part I are:

 Table Manners
 CleanlinessDeferring to Adults
 NeatnessBorrowingChildren's Overuse of "Why?"
 CourtesyRote MemoryBedtime
 GenerosityThe Importance of Books

Goops and How to Be Them isn't one of our Behavior Books...but it could be!
