Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - JoAn Watson Martin
The authors create a perfect book for little ones going out and about with their mothers. They dedicate this book about manners to toddlers everywhere. At the library, Emily knows how to use her quiet voice. Of course, like all real readers, she finds it difficult to curb her enthusiasm when she finds a book about which she is thrilled. Mothers will appreciate the help the book offers to teach children how to act, not only in the library, but in the doctor's waiting room, at pre-school, at grandma's, in church, or while shopping. Some good manners will help keep children safe, like waiting for the green light asking before petting a strange dog, and holding mother's hand in a crowd. Reviewer: JoAn Watson Martin
