Kinsley Foster was raised in suburban Ohio to appreciate the virtues of elegance and decorum. Kinsley admits that Kitty is very much her likeness of the perfect child. Sweet, polite and considerate, Kitty handles even her shortcomings with grace. As a young woman living in Los Angeles, Kinsley hopes that this book will foster the return to a time when manners were not just reserved for special occasions.Review:
This book is an appropriate read for all ages. Younger readers are introduced to standards of behavior which, once put to practice, will instill in them the confidence to approach new situations with grace. Older readers are reminded of the long neglected institutions of etiquette and will hopefully be inspired to reinforce them in their children. We've needed a book like this for a long time! -- Patrick Dominic, reader, Los Angeles, CA
