Worth buying for 6-8 year olds Nov 16, 2006
Really taught great things for children 6-8. For anyone older than that, it was a bit too young.
Fab-u-lous Book to get Sons Interested in Manners. "What's manners, Mom?" Nov 10, 2005
I have sons and the oldest was five when grandma gifted this book to him. With little brother just 5 years behind him, we have another wave of 'what's manners?' inquiries. A Little Book of Manners for Boys is more of a picture book that just gets them started. It's a nice 'coffee' table book for boys. I set it out before their acquaintences come over- not for my boys. No, no! Mine are well versed in appropriate manners. It's for those monsters that they have decided to tame. HA! My sons shall certainly save the world- one boy at a time.
Leave this around the house Aug 31, 2005
Although this book was met with moans and groans, I notice my 10 year old picking it up and reading it when I left it around the house. It is pleasantly presented and contains basic rules of courtesy and friendship that every child should know about. Even if they've already been told these things, or they've already sort of figured some things out, it's nice to have a little book around to support what they've heard or learned.
Doesn't go far enough Oct 30, 2002
This book doesn't go into enough detail and is very vague about many etiquette situations and manners. We were hoping for some practical advice and ideas, couldn't find much here.
A Little Book of Manners for Boys Jul 19, 2000
Thank you Mr. Barnes for this wonderful and well written book. Boys are shorted when it comes to social graces. This book fills that gap. It is well written with a boy's attitude and is not all sweet and mushy like little girl books. The graphics are wonderful. Teaching children manners is important yet often forgotten unless a large social event comes along. Telling a child how to act 5 mintues before you get there is a accident waiting to happen. By teaching our children manners we are giving them control and empowering them. With out that control the child feels lost and with act up out of frustation. This wonderful book helps boys understand manners for just about every social occasion. Be it on the playground, classroom, telephone, or wedding. Children also learn about kindness to other.
