Vibrant and witty, Rah, Rah, Herman! is a deliciously funny tale with a powerful lesson in kindness that is sure to delight fun-loving, creative kids.
Herman lives with his mom and dad and little brother Robby, whom he loves very much. There’s just one problem: Herman likes to do naughty things—very naughty things. From squeezing ketchup on the wall of his favorite pizzeria to surfing the luggage carousel at the airport to finger-painting over his classmate’s drawing with grape jelly, rascally Herman’s disobedient antics make his parents and teacher furious, but no matter how many times they tell him to stop, he refuses to listen. When they say, “Don’t do that, Herman!” all he hears is, “Blah, blah, blah, Herman!”
But one day, Herman sees a lady trip and fall on the sidewalk by his house, and instead of being mischievous, Herman decides to help her. When the lady thanks Herman for his kindness, instead of hearing, “Blah, blah, blah, Herman!” he hears, “Rah, rah, rah, Herman!” And boy, he likes listening to that!
Herman learns that being kind and helping others not only makes his family and teacher much happier, but it makes him feel better about himself than when he’s being naughty.
