The Best Manners Books for Kids
This blog uses affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.
Teaching good manners to kids is best done through modeling the behaviors you want to see in them. Saying ‘Please’ and ‘Thank you’ to them teaches them to do the same. Our expectations at the family dinner table, even from a very young age, set the tone for what we expect when we go out to a restaurant or to someone else’s home.
Little kids love to model ‘grown up’ behaviors with their dolls and toys, by hosting teddy bear picnics or having the firefighter action figures come to the rescue. My kids are so funny–they would set up an entire village across a room with blocks and cardboard boxes, and their mishmash ‘community’ of Star Wars figures, Ninja Turtles, Little People, and dinosaurs would interact, host parties, and attend concerts and races. It always made me smile to hear them using good etiquette with their activities.
This week, we are sharing some of our favorite manners books for kids. These books help show kids how to behave through some of their favorite characters. If you have any suggestions for us, please let us know in the comments below. Thank you! 🙂
