9780060571962: Emily Post's The Guide to Good Manners for Kids

Since 1922, the name Emily Post has represented good manners based on kindness, courtesy, and unselfishness. Today, the third generation of Post authors, Peggy Post and Cindy Post Senning, offers the children of the twenty-first century a comprehensive guide to good manners. This book is full of the simple, practical advice that Emily herself would have offered. Written with kids in mind and full of bold illustrations, emily post's the guide to good manners for kids is a reference guide that children will use and parents can trust. It covers just about every situation a kid will face:

  • writing thank-you notes
  • attending after-school events
  • using the Internet safely
  • speaking -- politely -- on cell phones
  • participating in weddings
  • helping out at home

Emily Post's The Guide to Good Manners for Kids has all the information on etiquette busy children -- and busy parents -- will need as they go about their daily lives.

About the Author:

Cindy Post Senning, Ed.D., codirector of The Emily Post Institute, Inc., developed a training program for etiquette educators and conducts children's etiquette workshops across the U.S. and overseas. Cindy is the coauthor of all the Emily Post children's books, with her sister-in-law, Peggy Post.



Steve Bjorkman has illustrated nearly one hundred picture books, including the New York Times bestseller Dirt on My Shirt by Jeff Foxworthy. He has also sold millions of greeting cards through Recycled Paper Greetings with his brother, Carl. Steve lives with his wife in Irvine, California.



Peggy Post, Emily Post’s great-granddaughter-in-law, is a director of The Emily Post Institute and the author of more than a dozen books. Peggy writes a monthly column in Good Housekeeping and an online wedding etiquette column for the New York Times.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-7–Post and Senning pinpoint the three main factors in etiquette as respect, consideration, and honesty. The book begins with a chapter on everyday life, which consists of thank yous and other written and spoken words, privacy, greetings and introductions, and techno-manners. The treatment of chat rooms, message boards, e-mail, pagers, and computers offers guidelines that protect users while facilitating positive, healthy interactions. Subsequent chapters take on family relations within the home, situations at school, social events, manners at the mall and concerts, hospital visits, religious events and weddings, and travel. Eating out, whether fast food or fine dining, is covered, as are funerals, taxis, and interacting with a person with a disability. The writing is clear, friendly, and sometimes clever, putting readers at ease and raising myriad possibilities through the use of "what if" scenarios, complete with possible dialogue and even multiple-choice answers. Lists of "Always and Nevers" provide quick reference for things like taking messages, making introductions, and borrowing personal items. "Sticky Situations" offers solutions to avoid embarrassment. The advice is consistently practical and simple, and is addressed to boys as well as girls ("Always put the toilet seat down"). Divorce or remarriage is treated compassionately, with specific suggestions for reacting honestly and considerately toward all parties. Simple sketch drawings adorn the text sporadically, offering humor but no additional information. A fine update to Elizabeth James and Carol Barkin's Social Smarts: Manners for Today's Kids (Clarion, 1996).–Joyce Adams Burner, Hillcrest Library, Prairie Village, KS
