Oh, how I have missed this book. My grandmother passed my mother's edition on to me when I was little, and its illustrations and funny stories have stayed with me all this time. I was heartbroken when I lost it, but as I didn't know the title or the author, I wasn't able to find it anywhere. This reprint has made me SO happy!

I was so happy to see this book back in publication. I remember it VERY well, but when I bought my new copy for my kids, there seems to be a page or two missing!!! Something happened to The Burpers, The Coughers and the Sneezers!!! The pages that said "Be Kind to Animals, They Have Feelings,Too" was in the middle of the book instead of at teh end, and there were pages at the end to put notes of "my own manners" and I don't remember those pages ever being there before.

I miss the Burpers, etc. I should notify the publisher, too.

But still, this book is wonderful.

Format: Paperback
Mr. Leaf's book was one of the cornerstones of our household, and my brother and I were constantly instructed to "sit down and read the manner's book." This book is very easy for children to comprehend, and it is an excelent way for parents to get their kids to a more "civil" state. I still love this book!

munro leaf's books in this series are excellent but before i bought it i checked it out at the library and i am glad i did. the concept is great but even for my 3 yr old daughter who will sit still for a book with great patience, she was losing interest. So i am just reviewing to share with others that you may have to shorten it as you read it to toddlers but it is a terrific series and would be perfect for children age 4 and up.

Lost in a sea of new-age mumblings, half-congealed PC semi-truths and "value-neutral" nonsense? Then, if you never do anything else for your kids, find a copy of this and Leaf's other gems and use them as often as you use the TV's remote control. They're full of the no-nonsense, boiled down "rules to live by" that so well defined the simpler ages gone by. To agree with another reviewer, this and the others probably would be banned today. But, when you consider who it is that bans books along with what's acceptable and what isn't by today's standards, it might be time to resurrect ol' Munro and let him have another go at our kids. Until somebody with the wisdom and resource to do that comes along and does, a well-used copy suits me just fine, thank you.

I love this book! My grandmother had it when I was a child, and I remembered the pictures. I am a Foster Parent, and have found that with some children this book is much loved and a good tool for learning manners. One in particular found these books by Munro Leaf to be favorite bedtime stories along with a review of the day. Sometimes it is good to be reminded of good old fashioned manners.

I am 65 years old and this was one of my first books. The revisions along the way have not changed the drawings that much. It is simple, but well illustrated, and gives a basic idea of good manners. I recommend it for every child - it makes them think about behavior. The way the author demonstrates "me first" and "whinney" have stuck with me all these years.

Oh joy! I have searched for this book and here it is again, back in print. I broke the record for checking it out of the Mission Hills, San Diego library as a child. It worked. 50 years after reading it, I'm one of the politest people I know!
