When a grown-up us introduced to you
Look up and say, "How do you do?"
If they extend their hand to take
Offer back a nice firm shake.
I don't know about your kids, but my kiddos could always use a little reminder every now and then when it comes to their "magic words" please and thank you. We read this new Madeline book and not only is it very informative on good manners but it fits perfectly into the Madeline library with its classic illustrations and characters.
In Madeline Says Merci, Madeline and her friends show readers what to do in all sorts of situations like meeting a new person, eating at the dinner table, receiving a gift, apologizing when making a mistake, and playing with friends. This is a great manners guide for preschoolers and early elementary school kids.
