This book is a picture book and is for the age group of P and older. This book did not win any awards. The book is about proper etiquette for young children to know.

Such a cute little book on etiquette! A great read aloud for younger grades (pre-k to 1st)
A little girl can do “magic” with her special words—polite words can make friends, make smiles appear, turn a frown into a smile or fix a mistake. Simple, colorful illustrations depict Emily using “please,” “thank you,” “hello,” “good-bye,” and “excuse me,” in appropriate situations. This is an ideal book to use with preschoolers to introduce or reinforce good manners. A Note to Parents at the end offers guidelines for teaching children basic etiquette.
