Bunny is always drinking his bottle but when Ducky and Piggy have a tea party, he realizes how the bottle hampers his ability to play.

I thought that the book No More Biting for Billy Goat by the same author-illustrator duo did a really good job of dealing with the problem of that particular aggressive behavior in a clear and concise way that children could relate to and understand. When I saw they also had this title, I thought this would be good to share with my class where I have a child who uses a cup at school but still drinks out of a bottle at home. Unfortunately, I was disappointed with this book. It is clearly designed for toddlers but the situation presented here is one of a character who constantly walks around with the bottle, even when playing. This may be the case for some children in real life, but the problem I've observed most tends to be more about meal times and even more so about naptime/bedtime. Kids have gotten used to having their bottles as part of their sleep routine, and they give tired and exhausted parents a hard time about it. The situation presented here seems like any a child would choose - give up the bottle in order to play - whereas the real-life situation is trickier. This book also seems to include a lot of shaming as part of the move to cups - bottles are for babies is the refrain Bunny hears. There must be more effective ways to teach a child to move on to more appropriate toddler behaviors. ( )
