This Back to School Free Behavior Book, "When Monsters Eat Their Lunch," teaches students about appropriate cafeteria behavior. Yes it's true. This misbehaving little monsters are at it again. And boy, do they ever make a mess? This fun and silly behavior story compares how monsters behave at lunch to how students behave at lunch.

Sample Story Text:

"When monsters eat their lunch,
they smack and slurp and crunch.
They jump out of their chairs.
They get food stuck in their hairs.
They yell and scream and shout.
They leave their garbage out...."

This new book in my "When Monsters Go To School" series also includes 4 "Don't Be a Monster..." classroom posters that can be used to review appropriate cafeteria behavior after you have read the story or you can post them around the room or school cafeteria to serve as great visual reminders.
