I loved it! Children being polite! One of my biggest complaints about children's books is how children talk to each other. My children are far from perfect, but I have zero tolerance for being impolite to others. I liked that even when the kids weren't polite they recognized they had made a mistake and still kept trying.

Some may view this book as unrealistic...

I would recommend this to parents looking for ways to teach their children about manners, respect, honesty and consideration. I especially like the note to parents in the back of the book and the part about modeling good behavior is just as important as telling children what is expected.

I didn't like this book. I thought it was too preachy to children on how to have manners. The book just talked about how these 2 children had good manners because they did this and that in different situations.

I liked the book and the lessons really stuck with my kids. (Not that they follow them) but they remembered the book which is important! Very simple but cute.
