Kids can laugh at themselves and still learn
Love the light hearted and friendly way all of these "silly old rules" are presented. My favorite thing about this book is that it explains the WHY behind manners - how it makes life easier and more pleasant. From saying "excuse me" to owning up to your mistakes... this book covers them all!

A bit disappointed.
I was excited to learn there were two manners books recently released. I really loved the look of the Miss Molly’s School of Manners book but was afraid it may be a little advanced for my 1 and 2 year olds. I decided to splurg and get both, thinking this book would be better suited for their age right now. It is just okay. I don’t feel like the text flows especially well. When I saw it was rhyming text, I envisioned it would be lyric-sounding to help remember good manners... similar to ‘we say thank you, we say please, we say excuse me when we sneeze,’ just to help little kids remember but I just didn’t feel that here. If you’re torn between both books like I was, I’d definitely recommend Miss Molly’s - cute and full of info!

Great for Toddlers and Kindergarten
Both this book and Miss Mollies School of Manners are great. This book would appeal to younger children with simpler, less complicated text that clearly convey the message of good manners in a fun way.

This books is so great for younger readers! It provides multiple, digestible scenarios that give great examples of better manners. I think my favorite page is the one that promotes PERSONAL SPACE :) I think any parent can appreciate that with a toddler around. It really touches on everything ranging from saying please & thank you, covering your mouth when coughing/sneezing and picking up after yourself. Well done!

Fun and educational
I think this is a great way to introduce children to good manners. It teaches by showing a bad example and a good example. I enjoyed reading it to my baby and look forward to reading it many times to come!

All time favorite!!!
This is my all time favorite book! I have bought two now, one for our home and one for my child's k4 class at school.

This has nearly all the basic manners I want my child to have, the illustrations are beautiful as always, and it has a good rhythm. Highly recommend.

Fun book to show manner
Since we bought this book, my 5 year old asks me to read it every night. I love how it uses animals to show how to show what good manners are. Today he asked me to get the book to show his younger sisters how everyone needs their own space.

I do really enjoy this book, but I don't care for the page about the pig. it just kind of rubs me the wrong way. other than that I think it's a great book.
