Following in the footsteps of the popular Let's Have a Tea Party!, Emilie Barnes introduces children to good manners. There's more to having good manners than knowing which fork to use. Ultimately, manners are an outward expression of a loving attitude. In this charming book, Barnes teaches 6- to 10-year-olds proper etiquette for mealtime, meeting and greeting strangers, answering the telephone, and more--all in the context of caring for others. Fascinating facts explain why we follow certain rules, and helpful hints demonstrate courtesy in a child-friendly way. Kids will see that Manners can be fun! Recommended for ages 6 to 10.

Review 1 for A Little Book of Manners: Courtesy and Kindness for Young Ladies
Date:February 20, 2002
From the perspective of the home schooling family:This book contains several references to school. An aunt is doing the teaching here rather than the parents. Also--siblings are not implied to be among those in the 'friend' category...in fact, when the question is asked whether we have to mind our manners with our siblings, the answer is that as hard as it is, the answer is yes. Just a wee bit shy of the teaching in our home !!! One last concern: Other than a very brief prayer of "grace" at a meal (and this surrounded by very PC lingo), there is no mention of manners related to church or anything associated with a Christ-centered lifestyle.
