Oh No, George!

Good George?

One day, Harris goes on an errand, leaving his pet George at home and asking him to be good. So, of course, George promises to behave. But he sees a cake on the kitchen counter and can’t keep his promise anymore. It does not stop. Next, he sees a cat, then a pot with soil. Oops, oh no, George! Poor George did not keep the promise. On his return, Harris’ reaction makes George repent. Harris settles and takes George for a walk, but George sees a cake again!

We picked this book for its title. The book talks about good and bad manners through the delightful story of George. Children will surely love a reading session of the book. In addition, parents and teachers have excellent conversation-starter material, especially with an open-ended conclusion. The illustrations are delightful and bright.

Oh No, George! by Chris Haughton is a playfully illustrated, fun addition to a kid’s read-aloud book list that can help begin a conversation among kids about behavior.
