SUMMARY: Katz once again sets his silly verses to classic song tunes such as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. This time the topic is manners with songs such as "Writing Thank Yous."
ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations were not as fun throughout the book as in past Silly Dilly books, but there are a few extra funny pictures.
REVIEW: It felt like Katz had run out of ideas in this book. The verses were not as clever and laugh out loud funny, but there are a few good ones. I had a hard time appreciating some of the verses because I either didn't know the song or because I had a difficult time maintaining the tune with different words inserted.
AGE RECOMMENDATION: As with most of Katz's work, I find the potty humor and grossness factor to be better geared to the older elementary age group of 8-12.
Cute rhymes, sometimes feels a bit forced though. Might help if I actually knew all the tunes! Illustrations were great though and remind me of Seuss stories.
This can be an interesting and funny way to introduce manners to children without being outright preachy.
The songs are incredibly silly and are set to more popular songs. That said, I really only knew a couple of the mentioned songs. However, I could search for them online if I really wnated to know the tune---- but we just made up our own tunes.
