Mr. Mouthful Learns His Lesson

The book Mr. Mouthful Learns His Lesson is a valuable, easy to read, easy to understand childrens book that you will fall in love with. Our parent testers certainly did. Mr. Mouthful is not your typical childrens book that lasts for a particular stage of childhood. This book will definitely last through several stages of a childs life. The story is funny, silly, creative and uses big words that also offer teaching moments with kids, which is why our parent testers strongly suggest that parents read it together with their kids. Apart from basic interactions like, What does that word mean?, How do you pronounce that?, What is another way you can say x, y, and z?, It promotes discussion of important life lessons and teaches essential concepts about how to be appropriate, learning what and when to say certain things, and when to just keep quiet. We have never come across a book that explains and communicates these particular lessons so ingeniously. Testers felt this book would also make a great teaching tool for teachers to use in the classroom, since that is often where kids are learning boundaries and what is and isnt appropriate to say to one another and the consequences of their words. The illustrations are fantastic and eye-catching. The quality of the book is terrific with a thick hard cover and sturdy pages. Put simply, this is a superb book that you will want in your home.

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:
