I also work as a camp counselor during the summer, and tell the kids, "No fighting, no biting, no hitting, no spitting!" The second half of the rhyme was created by my co-counselor at the time. It always works. They always stop. :)
While it doesn't have the attention getting rhymes of Dr. Seuss or the dreamy nature of a 'Once upon a time..' the story is engrossing and teaches a good lesson.
I highly recommend a copy to any family, and doubly so to families with 2 children.
