#blogbookaday: People Don’t Bite People

4 Jul

People Don't Bite People.jpgSummary:  “Lisa Wheeler and Molly Idle remind overeager little biters that biting is for food.

It’s good to bite a carrot.
It’s good to bite a steak.
It’s bad to bite your sister!
She’s not a piece of cake.

People don’t bite people!
That’s what this book’s about.
So if you find
you’re tooth-inclined—
you’d better check it out!” (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: A perfect story for little ones who are having trouble with biting of people. This is a fun rhyming story with a great cadence that just begs it to be read aloud! With examples of what you should bite and what other animals bite, this story repeats the refrain, “People don’t bite people!” I can definitely see older kids “reading” this book after hearing it a couple of times and with a message spelled out in a fun way, this is definitely a must-have title in your own library.

Personal Reaction: I love Molly Idle’s illustrations and it was fun to see her illustrate food items rather than the birds I’m used to in her Flora stories. I’d love to know if there was a tune to this text as it’s written almost as if it’s a song… If anyone can figure out a tune, let me know!

#blogbookaday (1)This is a new idea I’m trying on my blog this year that was inspired by @donalynbooks and @heisereads – to provide a brief review of a picture book every day of 2018. You’ll get a brief summary of the story, a review of the content, illustrations and theme, my personal reaction to the book and all the pertinent publication information! Enjoy!
