Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tracy Riddle
The original family of etiquette offers a social treat with this manners book for young children. With simple text, a bit of humor, realistic everyday examples, and friendly characters, this book offers many positives. Using both male and female icons, the book appeals to both boys and girls. The varied scenarios make the book appropriate for everyone, both in school and at home. Most children will be able to relate to the examples given. The text sets its primary focus on positive practices, what the child should do, or the desired model to follow, as opposed to the "don't" models. This can be used as a teaching tool for both parents and teachers, most appropriately as a read-aloud or a read-along, as the text may possibly be hard to track for your young reader. This is a welcome addition to the Post's collection.
