Good Manners Matter! – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
This series points out the necessity of using good manners in a variety of situations…the text is easy to read, and is surrounded by plenty of white space. Scenarios are presented…and readers are invited to consider how they would respond. Behaviors explored in the narrative are listed numerically in a review section at the end. Appealing cartoons appear on one side of each spread, and the multiethnic characters’ features are exaggerated and/or off-kilter, creating a humorous appearance. While few children would choose to read these books on their own, these titles will be useful and effective as part of a classroom character-education study or to help model better manners.
