It’s exciting to announce the publication of our latest book for children eight-to-thirteen-years-old: Emily Post’s Table Manners for Kids (Collins, May 2009). I wrote it with my sister-in-law, Peggy Post, to let kids know how table manners can be important to them. All the examples will sound familiar to most children:
You’re over at a friend’s house for dinner and they serve something so spicy hot you can’t eat it. What do you do?
You’re attending a sports banquet at school. The tables are crowded and it’s hard to tell one place setting from another. How do you know which glass is yours?
You’re at Thanksgiving dinner at your grandmother’s, you open your mouth to talk, and out comes a loud burp! What do you say?
Kids and parents alike will love the amusing pen and ink illustrations by Steve Bjorkman. They provide a great opportunity to talk about table manners together. With Emily Post’s Table Manners for Kids your kids can teach themselves the table manners you want them to learn.
