D.W. Says Please and Thank You by Marc Brown
Arthur dares his little sister D.W. to be perfect for one whole day. Being perfect also means, using lots of good manner, after looking perfect first of course. D.W. cleans her room, says good-bye, hello, excuse me, and does NOT use mean words, closes her mouth when chewing, not whining and complaining, etc. At the end of the day D. W. realizes that manners "give you magical powers and people treat you like a big kid!" Although this book came out in 2006, we often forget about the power of series books. Even kids that may THINK they have outgrown an old favorite, like Arthur, can learn alot when exposed to them as BIG kids!
