Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kimberly O'Meara
Increasing the likelihood of children using manners can be the focus of many parents and teachers alike. The "Way to Be! Manners" series gives adults a door through which to enter into productive conversations with children about the necessity of using manners in everyday life. The series highlights individual situations and explores the ways in which children can have good manners. This book, which focuses on telephone manners, enhances a child's understanding of good manners by using direct and concise language. From how to answer the phone to taking a good message, the book offers advice on teaching telephone manners to young children. The characters are elementary-aged children and their parents which combined with the computer graphic illustrations, bring a modern day feel to the book. The end of the book offers "Fun Facts" to extend the listeners' knowledge of how manners differ from place to place.

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.
