Rather like an etiquette guide for young children, this book covers how to behave in many situations common to young children and encourages politeness, good manners and co-operation. Subjects covered include: behaving politely at school, not interrupting, being well-behaved away from home (at a friend’s house, for example), showing good manners at a party (and refusing an invitation and receiving a gift politely), writing thank you notes and good table manners. The book concludes on a positive note, explaining that if you are polite, people remember you for all the right reasons.
This informative little picture book asks the reader "how polite are you?" and covers many situations where a child may compare their own behaviour to the behaviour of the girl in the book.
Despite the fact that this is essentially a book of 'do's and don'ts', it should hold young children's attention and entertain them if tackled in bite-size chunks. The illustrations are appealing.
