Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
Having good manners means treating others the way you like to be treated. "Etiquette is a word that describes proper social behavior." Words such as "please," "thank you," or "excuse me," in certain situations, show you care about others. Making eye contact shows interest in the other person. Treating your family with kindness and respect shows good manners at home. Ask for permission to use someone else is things. Knock on closed doors. Help with chores. Speaking and listening respectfully to others helps with communication. "Never say something on the Internet that you would not say in person." Be a good neighbor. Use good table manners. Remember to show respect at school for your classmates, teachers, and other adults such as those in the office or cafeteria. Gossip on social media and bullying may need adult intervention. Using manners on the playing field is part of being a good sport. Treat your teammates, coaches, and referees with respect. Statistics are given on various opinions by Americans: such as: "Number of Americans who think lack of respect and courtesy is a national problem: 8 out of 10." Interesting colored photographs enliven the text. This is part of "A True Book" series. A list of books for further reading, a Scholastic website for more information, a list of definitions, and an index are at the end. This readable, attractive compendium of manners is appropriate for the age group. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman
