Kids today need manners more than ever, and this book makes it fun and easy to get some.
Full-color cartoons and kid-friendly language teach the basics of polite behavior in all kinds of situations – at home, at school, in the bathroom, on the phone, at the mall, and more. Kids learn Power Words to use and P.U. Words to avoid, why their family deserves their best manners, and the essentials of “e-tiquette” (politeness online).
It seems like light reading, but it’s serious stuff – manners are major social skills, and this book gives kids a great start. Suitable for ages 8-12. 128 pages. Softcover. 2007.
