Then.....on Page 4, above...., ‘I’m thinking might hurt someone’s feelings. I don’t tell Grandma she’s fat.’ WHAT‼️‼️‼️ I didn’t mind editing the little book to read more smoothly, but what an INSULTING THING TO WRITE IN A BOOK TO KIDS AS YOUNG AS 4😱. Outrageous💜. Absolutely OUTRAGEOUS ‼️
My REFUND’s processing & they don’t even require me to RETURN this PIECE OF. INSULTING so-called. Children’s Literature ‼️
Pls don’t waste u X or $.👎🏼👎🏼 😷💜🌍
"A Little Book of Manners" is a wonderful book for girls by Emilie Barnes. The age range is probably about 6-12. This book has delightful illustrations and covers many different topics: meeting, telephone, visiting, mealtime, party, and thankfulness. Readers will learn what to do if they make a mistake, how to write a good thank-you note, how to be a good guest, how to meet people politely, what to do if you call a wrong number on the telephone, and much more. Full of fun and useful information, Emilie Barnes pretends to be a girl in the book, and stresses the fact that good manners is a way to show love, or "Love has manners", and the purpose of it. Most importantly, it is a Christian book with a mealtime prayer and has the Golden Rule, but I would much prefer more Scripture. It's a wonderfully enjoyable book and my favorite book in this series.
Other Emilie Barnes books for girls include "My Best Friends and Me", "Let's Have a Tea Party", "Come to my Party", "Making My Room Special", "A Little Book of Manners for Boys", "Cooking Up Fun in the Kitchen", and a few more. I highly recommend this and most of her other books.
That said, it is a good book, it covers almost everything I could think of. Overall, I haven't found a better one and I think it's very important to teach our kids manners, even the ones that seem old-fashioned.
I personally didn't care for the fact that it's told as a story, I did like how they broke things down into telephone manners, mealtime manners, ect. It's more personal preference than a flaw with the book.
I can't wait until the day I can start teaching my granddaughter to be a little lady!
