    Good for Grown ups too

    I ordered this book to help with a discussion of workplace manners. It brought humor to a difficult discussion and gave great examples of taking charge of your own behavior no matter how challenging the circumstances.

    Little adventurers will love this!

    This book, along with its companion, What do you Say Dear?, is a charming introduction to the world of manners. My sons (age 3 and 5) love the pictures of cowboys, pirates, kings, queens, knights (everything they love to play) and the guessing game format of the book. These titles effectively teach manners in a fun-loving way. More than once someone in our household (besides me!) has been heard to say "What do you do/say dear?"
