Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-7-This update of Oops! The Manners Guide for Girls (Pleasant Co, 1997) covers the basic etiquette areas, including cell phone and table manners, host and guest duties, and such occasions as weddings and family gatherings. The text is sprinkled with lots of colorful illustrations and quizzes geared to letting readers assess their own behavior. Though the rules echo the traditional thoughts on the subjects, the lively writing and straight talk make them seem fresh and relevant today. Especially well done is the section on writing nicely worded thank-you notes, which, in the age of text messaging and e-mails, takes on an even greater significance.-Elaine Baran Black, Gwinnett County Public Library, Lawrenceville, GA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    It taught me a ton about manners, helping out, and being polite. If you adivce about being more polite, get this! Or, if you're already polite, you'll find advice to make you even more polite! It also helps you with embaressing and hard-to-handle situations. Take it from a girl who, yes, could sometimes be very rude. This also helps you not just look more mature, but act more mature too!

    This is a good book that will teach you respect and everyday manners.

    I am 8 1/2 and I think this book teaches you all the everyday manners and how to act at events like weddings and birthday parties. It has fun quizzes at the end of each chapter that shows you if you need to work more on your manners.

    This is a good book for all ages of girls- not only eight through ten. Half the stuff in there I didn't know, and I'm eleven. You really can't be too old or young for this book!

    GREAT!!!! Really Helps!!!!!!

    I'm a 10year old girl, and i got this book for Christmas and i LOVED IT!!! There's quizzes to see how much you already know about manners, and it's GREAT! It helps everyone know when it's 'appropriate to talk during formal dinners, and be polite. I love it so much! You can quiz your friends and family too! You really do learn from this! Trust me! If your a 10year old girl like me, it'll be the best book ever for you. I never put it down, and I just kept reading....right when I got it! Really, it was SUPER good! LOVE IT!! It's just like going to boarding school, but it's from a book! It's actually better than boarding school! Because I know......my brother went to boarding school, and he could have just got this book to read! It's not like people who are bad ONLY go to boarding school, he went there to learn NEW stuff, and you can get all that stuff right inside this book! It's soo great, you'll LOVE IT!!!!!!!! I should give it like 100 stars! IT'S THE BEST! GET IT NOW!!!!!

    Must-Have for preteen girls.

    My daughter is almost 8 and I bought the book for her but there are a few topics that she isn't ready for such as "parties with boys". I would suggest the book for ages starting at nine or ten instead of 8. The rest appropriate and my daughter really enjoys. We read it together so we can discuss each topic and she can ask questions. You won't regret this purchase.

    Great book, especially for tweens!

    This book is great for children, and it can even teach adults a thing or two! It teaches not only about manners but also the nicer thing to do in the toughest situations that young kids can get into. Totally a great deal and an awesome book!

    Loved it!

    My mom suprised me with this book. When I read it, I could not put it down. It teaches you basics, and everything, like if you go to a pool and someone is having a birthday. I would reccomend this to anyone who needs to freshen up on their manners. This also makes a nice present, and it has a checklist at the end to check of if you are a good listner, or you'll give your seat to someone who needs it most. There are also bright illustrations, that show girls having troubles or doing the right thing. I learned a WHOLE bunch from it. You will, too.

    Bad sample, good book

    The sample only has enough pages so that the first actual page you read is the TABLE OF CONTENTS and then its done! It has only six pages! You can't know anything about the book. DO NOT GET THE SAMPLE?
    But I read it and it's really good! I do reccomend this maners book

    Great Book!

    This book is very helpful, and fun to read. It is great to read for fun, and it is very educational. I love all American Girl Books because they are all a lot of fun to read, and I think they are fun to collect. I get the American Girl Magazines and I am always very excited when I get one. I also love the books. This one is a great one to have!
