Dog Days of Summer


Wiggens
Wiggens Learns His Manners 
at the Four Seasons
by Leslie McGuirk & Alex von Bidder
Ages 5-9

With hot weather settled in, I thought this would be a good time to feature a dog-themed book and Wiggens fits that bill. This Labrador pup is in need of some manners and he heads to the Four Seasons for training. 

Wiggens and his friends retain their puppy enthusiasm as they're taught about social graces. The quirky speech bubbles are sure to keep kids entertained while the 10 lessons on manners are served up in a unique style.  Bon appetit!

Activity: Generate a list of manners with your students and write them on paper plates. Create a restaurant-themed bulletin board display and post the plates for all to see.
