K-Gr 3-Bright double-page sections combine advice about politeness with large, often full-page illustrations. Ingalls emphasizes that manners are based upon respect and consideration for others, and her suggestions for developing good habits are clear and understandable. Occasional jokes and humorous suggestions enliven the text and are age-appropriate. Most of Rooney's colorful cartoons depict a diverse group of kids doing the proper thing, but a few show examples of selfish or unmannerly behavior. "Did You Know?" factoids provide additional information or tell readers about customs in other countries. Brief glossaries define terms and use them in sentences; a "Quick Quiz" at the end of each book reinforces main points. These titles are suited for a number of educational settings as well as for individual reading, making them strong choices for emerging readers.α(c) Copyright 2011.
