Recommends it for: anyone with kids.
Checked out this little gem from the library mostly for its title. It has brought out many laughs from the kids and "ews" from me.

For kindergarten children, this is an excellent book to read to teach children about manners and to inform them what are manners.

I love the school manners.

This was great, if only we could make everyone read it! Although this book is aimed towards children some adults could benefit from it as well. There are parts that are downright funny, yet still informative.
