Do you have a difficult time teaching your kids good table manners? If you do, Karin Lafranc’s A Quest for Good Manners is for you. This is a great children’s picture book about how to teach kids good manners. Many kids have a difficult time learning how to eat politely and act with kindness and compassion. They slurp and throw their food. Other times, they don’t practice good table manners such as saying please and thank you to Mom and Dad. And they don’t treat others with kindness unless taught.
Many parents find it hard to talk to their kids about good manners period. And even when parents succeed at broaching the discussion with their kids, kids will do everything in their power to rebel against such seemingly old-fashioned rules. This book will show parents how to teach kids good table manners at the dinner table, and kindness and compassion in their day to day dealings with others.
There is an unspoken charm and grace to A Quest for Good Manners. It is uniquely written and the illustrator, Hannah Neale, did a splendid job of engaging readers through the bold and colourful illustrations throughout the book. I intend to read the book at the day camp I will be volunteering at this summer. I am sure that this book will motivate all kids to be kinder, more compassionate, and graceful.
