If we want something

we

say

PLEASE

We say THANK YOU

if you help us or

give us something or

do things for us.

Before we leave the table

we ask if

we

may

be

excused.

And say THANK YOU

if we are told we may.

Continuing the success of How to Behave and Why-with hundreds of thousands of copies sold, 50,000 in the last year and a half alone!-comes another gem from the trove of Munro Leaf.

Considered his second most popular book, Manners Can Be Fun was first published in 1936 and is among Munro Leaf's acclaimed "Fun" series, which includes Grammar, Reading, and History. In his signature style of stick-figure illustrations and wholesome text, this charming guide, in which courtesy does not have to be a chore or a response to scolding, makes manners a delight to learn. With such characters as the Mefirsts and the Whineys, children can laugh while absorbing the elementary rules of thoughtfulness and etiquette. To listen, cooperate, act graciously, and share, among others, are invaluable lessons that should never be underestimated, and that help make happy, well-adjusted, and secure children who will one day grow up to be happy, well-adjusted, and secure adults.

I've been in love with this book since I was a little girl. The lessons I learned as child from this book continue to shape the ways I communicate & behave. Highly recommended for every child and adult!
