Always Listen to Your Mother by Florence Heide

Heide, Florence Parry and Roxanne Heide Pierce Always Listen to Your Mother, illustrated by Kyle M. Stone.  Disney, 2010.  $15.99.  Ernest is a mild-mannered boy who is always helpful around the house.  When Vlapid moves next door, Ernest learns that he always listens to his mother, too, though the directions are a little bit different.  The two learn together to have a really great time.  While I think the message might be lost on children, I love the illustrations with their creepy, but happy feeling (you’ll have to check them out).  EL (K-3) – OPTIONAL.
