Recently, I found this little book, Dude, That's Rude, on Amazon and thought how much fun it would be to review it on my children's book blog. So I ordered it and I wasn't disappointed. It may not be Amy Vanderbilt, but it's "way cool" and gets the good manners point across to children and adults alike.
The illustrations alone will hold anyone's attention, and the way good manners are presented by the written word speaks to both pre-teens and teens. It addresses everyday issues like: power words and words that show you might be a clod; how to treat one's family; good school manners; and even mall manners. It discusses just about anything a kid needs to know about social skills.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and will suggest it to my readers, family members, and friends.
Here are a few words the book recommends a child use in place of swear words...gosh!, darn it!, dang it!, etc.; which in my opinion, should not be used either. The book calls passing gas, "butt blasts" which many children will pick up on and also start using.
The books "Manners Made Easy" and "Manners Made Easy for Teens" are both much better books for teaching this subject.
Although with some editing, you would be able to use this book.
I highly recommend this book for elementary counselors and teachers, for a fun way to discuss appropriate manners and behaviors. I may have to buy another copy soon as mine is starting to fray and come apart from using it so often! :)

This went over great at a youth program where I worked. It opened up dialogue about social behaviors that the kids just weren't being addressed at home with many of the children. Read morePublished 2 months ago by A P
