A Quest for Good Manners

A Quest for Good MannersWe all want our kids to have good manners, so why not send them on a quest in A Quest for Good Manners by Karin Lefranc?

Rosalind is not your typical princess. She and her pet dragon, Sparkler, are very rude. "What's the big deal with manners anyway?" the princess asks. "Why do we always have to say please and thank you? And who cares how we use a napkin?"

Appalled by this behavior, the queen banishes the impolite pair from her castle until they find Good Manners. Percival, the wizard, sends them on their quest with the help of a magic fork, facing several challenges along the way. Not until the final test do Rosalind and Sparkler discover the real secret behind Good Manners.

Let's face it, much like Rosalind, children think manners are just 'a bunch of boring rules,' so how do you instill good manners in your kids? As kids embark on this fun adventure, they'll be introduced to table manners; the magic words please and thank you; and kindness and consideration. Lefranc has found a way to make learning manners fun and perhaps when you're finished reading, you might even hear those two magic words, "Thank you."
