Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Traci Avalos
Manners in the Library provides an engaging and non-threatening way to approach the topic of proper behavior with young children. It gives excellent instruction about using good manners, and begins with sharing why it is important for kids to have good manners in the library. Children will be able to make a connection with real life from the very first page! Readers will learn appropriate etiquette like using an inside voice, checking out an appropriate number of books, and returning books by the proper due date. They will also learn how to behave around other library patrons so that everyone can enjoy their time in the library. Universal manners like saying "please" and "thank you" are also covered. It also demonstrates the importance of families spending time together at the library. The digitally created pictures are bright and inviting and use a variety of multiethnic children to demonstrate important manners. There is a "Fun Facts" page at the end that lists some differences in customs for children around the world. The last page includes an index and instructions for using FactHound, a website with links to approved sites that have been researched by the Capstone staff. This book is fully bilingual and includes complete text in both English and Spanish, and is a part of the "Way to Be!: Manners" series. Reviewer: Traci Avalos

PreS-Gr 2—This book illustrates many different ways that good manners make a library visit a pleasant one and ensure that everyone has a positive experience. Some of the suggestions include keeping quiet, being careful with library materials, asking for help, and returning books on time. Lensch's digital illustrations are fun and expressive and re-create various library settings. This book is a great resource to teach library etiquette.—Liliana Patricia Rocha, Teton County Library, Jackson, WY

Meet the Author

Carrie Finn never thought that she would write books, much less books for children. However, after spending so much time with her 13 nieces and nephews, something must have rubbed off on her. She’s now the author of 10 titles for Picture Window Books.

Carrie has been teaching college writing since 1999 and continues to enjoy helping others with their writing. She stays busy by throwing pottery on the wheel, playing the piano, baking bread from scratch, and talking to the miniature donkeys on the farm near her house.

Carrie currently lives in Waterloo, Iowa, with her husband and trusty sidekick, Dan.
