Children's Books About Manners

We love using children's books to cross reference life lessons. Here are some of our faves for kiddos of all ages.  What are your family's favorites?

Richard Scarry's Please and Thank You Book
This book holds a lot of fond memories for us.  It includes Scarry's lovable cast of characters and brings humor to everyday situations. Go out and buy this book, it will be read over and over AND OVER again. This book is recommended for ages 3 and up, although we believe children who are even younger will get a kick out of it.

Manners at the Table (Way to be! Manners) 
by Carrie Finn, Illustrated by Chris Lensch
This beautifully illustrated book is recommended for ages 5 and up, but we think your preschoolers would love this too!  It's charming, fun and straight to the point.  This book will open up the conversation for all things polite at the table. 

Dude, That's Rude!: (Get Some Manners)
by Pamela Espeland & Elizabeth Verdick
This book is fantastic for the older crowd, children ages 8 and up.  It's modern, (including advice on cell phone & computer use) and funny. This book includes table etiquette as well as manners for all sorts of other situations.  It's creative and silly but gets the point across.  We think it'll be a big hit.
