    Table Manners For Kids

    Emily Post tackle's the issue of "Table Manners for Kids". This book is co-authored by Peggy Post and Cindy Post Senning, daughters of Emily. From how to eat cherry tomato's, to the proper way to set the table, to how to apologize for a slip up while at the table, to how to throw a dinner party, this book covers it all with easy to understand picture's along with question and answer segments. Kids will be delighted in how this book addresses common mistakes, makes light of them and moves on to the correct way to handle the situation. Nobody learns well when they receive table manner lessons while being ridiculed for their behavior at the table, and this book takes on the job of addressing common do's and do not's without the fear of being criticized. As an adult, I would recommend this book to people of all ages who have interaction with children, be their interaction daily or monthly, for our action's are the best teachers. This is an enjoyable read and I learned quite a lot regarding "proper table manners". Similar to how "slang" has infected our language; "slangish manner's" have infected our table habits and show up as a lack of respect for our selves and others while at the table.

    Common sense approach to every day life.

    My 12 year old daughter is sweet and had been working on restaurant manners with her uncle when they would have a special dinner. I didn't see these skills being used at home without us reminding her to use her manners. I bought her this book as a gift and I think she is even surprised how much she is enjoying reading the lessons. She is absorbing the information and using it without being prodded. I am really glad we bought this book as it is nice to have a means to get the information through to her without any eye rolling whatsoever.
