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.

Meet the Author

Cindy Post Senning, Ed.D., codirector of The Emily Post Institute, Inc., developed a training program for etiquette educators and conducts children's etiquette workshops across the U.S. and overseas. Cindy is the coauthor of all the Emily Post children's books, with her sister-in-law, Peggy Post.

This is Mike Gutch's first children's book other than his unpublished "book" he wrote in third grade about New York State, which coincidentally is where he resides, in the town of Pelham, just outside of New York City. Mike lives with his wife and four children. When he's not making peanut butter and honey sandwiches for them or working for the Man, he's enjoying the great outdoors. If you'd like to send him a note on the book or advice on how to get anything unstuck, you can email him at mikestuckgutch@gmail.com.

Steve Bjorkman has illustrated more than seventy books for children, including the New York Times bestselling Dirt on My Shirt by Jeff Foxworthy, Emily's Everyday Manners by Peggy Post and Cindy Post Senning, I Hate English! by Ellen Levine, and Safari Park by Stuart J. Murphy. He also creates greeting cards with his brother, Carl, and together they have sold millions through Recycled Paper Greetings. Steve lives with his wife and three children in Irvine, California.

Peggy Post, Emily Post’s great-granddaughter-in-law, is a director of The Emily Post Institute and the author of more than a dozen books. Peggy writes a monthly column in Good Housekeeping and an online wedding etiquette column for the New York Times.
