Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

K-Gr 3- This early introduction to basic etiquette features simple text and equally simple illustrations. Accompanied by Landry's straightforward depictions of the child and her friends, all isolated against a featureless white background, the authors introduce readers to a handful of polite terms. The premise is that knowing (and using) them makes it easy to get along with everyone. As Emily wends her way forward through the book, her words generate all manner of results. "Please" and "thank you" compel Jerome to hold a door for her; variations on "hello" and "good-bye" bring smiles all around; "excuse me" allows the grown-ups to forgive her for burping at dinner. The clear message is plainly conveyed. A "Note to Parents" acknowledges that the finer points of etiquette are lost on young children, but reminds adults that it is important to set the stage early in order to raise respectful, conscientious children. Consider this a serviceable addition to most collections.-Catherine Threadgill, Charleston County Public Library, SC
