Written in a style that's a cross between Dr. Seuess and third grade limericks, we have the story of Michael who comes home and tries his best to asnwer his mother who had asked him about his schoolday. But she keeps interrupting him with the refrain "Don't Say That Word!" You get the picture. It's a light-hearted lesson in appropriate language for the early readers. Your kids will laugh and have such a good time, that you can sneak in a lot of good advice before they realize it.
