Demanding Dudley: A Review

If you know me it is clear that my utmost purpose in my classroom is to build community and kinder kids. I am always on the lookout for books that emulate this message of kindness and courtesy toward others. Recently I was given the book, Demanding Dudley written by Deneen Renae and illustrated by Leslie Pinto, part of a series of books called The Wiblets. This book peeks inside the power of using our magic words, "please" and "thank you."

Dudley is a comical monster who demands things from his mother.

Like most good moms, she responds gently with a reminder, ""Is someone being a demanding Dudley?"

The book introduces children to words like, appreciated and thankful, explaining their meanings and how they make others feel.
I would recommend this book to parents and teachers (prek-2) when helping children learn the power of kindness and being mindful of how we talk to others.
Here is an excerpt from the book:


The book can be purchased from The Wiblets webpage. Every purchase from their website contributes to the charity, The Hawn Foundation.

Sounds like a cute book! I'm always looking for great picture books for the classroom and the monsters fit right into my theme!
