Top Customer Reviews
Our daughter now talks about Emily and Ethan like they are friends of the family. She extrapolates what she has learned in the book by asking "What Emily and Ethan would do" in a given situation. Her favorite parts of the book are the magic words, Ethan waiting in line at school (we trace the line together) and the part about being quiet in church (which is a work in progress for her....). It was wonderful to see a connection between manners and "being kind" and "being respectful" in the book, because we have what are known as "The Be Rules" in our house: "Be Honest, Be Kind, Be Respectful, Work Hard, Help Others, Have Faith, and Have Fun!" (We also have the corresponding "No Rules" like "No biting, no hitting, no kicking, etc....) She has been able to rattle off some version of those rules since she was very young, and to see them in print, connected with the pleases and the thank yous was really quite good for her. It gave her another level of understanding of why manners matter.
She is a great little girl and we frequently get compliments on how polite she is (which is good, because the non-stop motion can be a challenge). So, thanks to Ethan and Emily for helping.
This book would certainly be excellent for an older child who could read it for themselves and peruse all the little etiquette treasures it contains.
