MANNERS by Aliki


Email this review


Aliki makes a tart lesson in etiquette smoothly palatable--in a comprehensive assortment of good and bad behavior that's presented with such generous good humor that few children will feel preached at. Aliki offers quick takes on ordinary situations where kindness and a little common sense make life pleasanter for everyone; comic-strip scenarios unfold, and multiracial children act out positive and negative responses, while readers are given samples of appropriate, courteous phrases to use in typical situations. Lively illustrations add relevant details and comical distractions. The Goops may be funnier, but Aliki's polite children and pint-sized boors should make their point while amusing the picture-book set.
