Kindergarten-Grade 3–Goldberg reminds readers of common polite phrases to use, such as please and thank you. She then moves on to circumstances children will recognize: interrupting, forgetting to clean up after yourself, and not saying you're sorry. The author outlines good manners for different situations: table, movies and theater, sports, elevator, etc. One spread addresses being a poor sport and gives six rules for kids on one side and one for adults on the other: don't yell at your child's coach. If you're a poor sport, your kid will be too. The text is informal and humorous: Don't think Serena Williams would be happy...or Tiger Woods would not roar...if he heard your cell phone ring. The mixed-media cartoons, which include animals, people, and other assorted creatures, keep the mood light as well.–Marilyn Ackerman, Brooklyn Public Library, NY

“Olo’s electric-hued, multi-media illustrations keep these conscientious, often
comedic tips in check, playing up the humor with hyperbole.” —
