I love Todd Parr's children's books.
Do's and Don'ts is so funny. The pictures are the best part.
Some of my favorite lines are:
Do change your socks every day. Don't make anyone smell them.
Do have lunch with a monkey. Don't eat his bananas.
Do wear clean underwear. Don't wear it on your head.
Do brush your teeth after every meal. Don't brush with peanut butter.
The kids and I love Zoo Do's and Don'ts.
Some of our favorite lines:
Do take a nap with a hippo. Don't let him steal all the covers.
Do go to the movies with a skunk. Don't make her mad.
Do take dance lessons with a porcupine. Don't slow dance with him.
Do brush your hair with a lion. Don't braid his mane.
Do wash your clothes with a rhino. Don't hang them on his horns to dry.
Do take a drive with a giraffe. Don't drive under a bridge.
