That's NOT How You Do It!
Publisher: Child's Play
Lucy is a clever little cat who knows how to do everything. She can eat with a spoon and fork, play the xylophone, even fold fabulous paper stars. In fact, all her friends ask her for help if they cannot do something. When Toshi the panda arrives from far away, Lucy doesn't understand why he does everything differently. She becomes increasingly frustrated when he eats using chopsticks and plays strange music. When he starts folding his paper stars all wrong, Lucy cannot contain herself any longer, blurting out "That's NOT how you do it!"
This light-hearted book about tolerance and friendship contains simple, repetitive text and bold illustrations. It is ideal to share with determined, independent young children to promote discussion about respecting differences and celebrating diversity.
