Described by Nathan, one of our employees, as "Kant's categorical imperative for 6-year-olds," this book has a simple and gentle message of personal responsibility and introduces the child to a sense of community as they are asked to consider what would happen if everybody did...? The hilarious and terrible consequences of everyone doing his own thing are portrayed in hysterical black and white illustrations by author/artist Jo Ann Stover. Children and adults alike will enjoy this precautionary tale with its concise rhyming text.
This book is a wonderful way to introduce young children to the concept of "cause and effect," by stretching their imaginations to visualize what would happen if everybody did things like...
...make tracks? ...spill tacks? ...pull off a bud? ...jump in mud? ...slam the door? ...stomp and roar?
...and much, much more!
