by John C. Lister
Rio is a little rat…a river rat to be exact.
He lives in a very human world; that is to say,
He can’t always do things his own way!
Rio’s mom has taught him well;
His manners are very good, do tell.
He is very different to be sure,
To be a rat in this world, there is no cure.
But a good little rat he is (and that is that!),
A very well-mannered river rat.
Do your children known the importance of good manners when playing with others, preparing for meals, thanking others who help them, and taking care of the world around them? Join Rio the Rat as he explains the manners we follow in these and other everyday situations. Good Manners for Very Young Children with Rio the Rat, by John C. Lister, uses plain language that children will understand and enjoy to set a good example in Rio for children to follow when practicing good behavior.
