People don't bite people, people bite food. It is a simple lesson, but one which we all had to learn at one time. We may get mad, but we aren't animals, and at a certain age, we are no longer young enough to not know any better. Wheeler explains all of this and more to an audience that is just at...

People don't bite people, people bite food. It is a simple lesson, but one which we all had to learn at one time. We may get mad, but we aren't animals, and at a certain age, we are no longer young enough to not know any better. Wheeler explains all of this and more to an audience that is just at the cusp of this age, and she does so with aplomb. Her metered, rhyming text feels like it could be put to a little tune. When also considering the purpose of the book, People Don't Bite People feels reminiscent of those PSA commercials for children like "Don't Put It In Your Mouth". With the funny examples, and each repetition of "people don't bite people...biting is for food", the message should become ingrained in much the same way. Idle's adorable illustrations only make this work all the more memorable. The soft colours, large, simplified designs, and round, doll-like people, suit the toddler-aged audience, and will certainly appeal to many parents who love cute things. Together, this creative pair has created an outstanding toddler picture book, with a relevant and easy-to-remember lesson. It is perfect for reading aloud, and has a high re-readability factor thanks to its catchy tune-like text, and humour.
