Manners and Me: An Easy-Peasy Guide for Kids and the Grown Ups Who Love Them is a basic guide to proper behavior, ideal for parents to share with children in grades K-5. Politeness rules include "Always thank people", "Be prompt", and "Do helpful things without being asked", and "Be patient". Cheerful illustrations of cartoon animals and straightforward text help teach these core values. "When you are mad, it helps if you count to ten slowly. Sometimes you can't be patient, and you might need to say 'I'm sorry' afterward." Manners and Me is a choice pick for school and public library picture book collections as well as for family reading, highly recommended.”

-  Midwest Book Review

“Being a kid means encountering the new and different nearly every single day, and Nancy Dorrier’s social issues picture book, Manners and Me, can help arm kids with the right thing to do or say in just about any social situation. I especially liked her concept of having three things to say about yourself when meeting someone new and then asking questions about them. Ralph Voltz’s illustrations are charming and a lot of fun, and they make this enlightening book even more entertaining. Dorrier and Voltz make learning about manners fun, and that’s a good thing. Most highly recommended.”    - Readers’ Favorite(5- Stars)
