This lovely picture book promotes positive behaviour, but also gently suggests that even the most good-mannered and co-operative amongst us may struggle to be 'good' sometimes. A great starting point for a conversation about manners, treating others well and sharing.
Children who have had a difficult start in life, who are finding it hard to adapt to life within a new family, may benefit from this book. Children in other situations who are struggling with emotional and behavioural issues may identify with Rosie in the book, and, with the guidance of a parent or other trusted adult, may be able to take the first steps to improving their situation.
The book explains what respect means and shows a child the different ways respect can be shown and received. It also explains how negative it is when you are not respected or do not respect other people.
Sometimes children just can't stop themselves from asking for everything they see and in the modern consumerist society it is increasingly difficult for parents to say no to their children's demands. The little princess's parents give her all the sparkly things she wants whenever she asks for them but she is never happy and she never says please.
This informative little picture book asks the reader "how polite are you?" and covers many situations where a child may compare their own behaviour to the behaviour of the girl in the book.
