Manners Time by Elizabeth Verdick


Manners Time by Elizabeth Verdick

Manners start with a smile--then you add the words. There are polite words to use when you greet someone, ask for something, or (oops!) make a mistake. There's even a nice way to say no. This book gives toddlers a head start on manners, setting the stage for social skills that will last a lifetime.


Uses age-appropriate language and situations to illustrate the social courtesies contained within. . . . Great for parents to read on a daily basis with their young ones. --Andrea Coventry, Montessori educator, Andi's Kids Books Blog
