A mischievous modern manners primer for kids

Inspired by the classic Tiffany’s primer on manners for teens and featuring a familiar cast of characters, Terrific Table Manners is a modern take on table etiquette that follows the course of a proper dinner-party meal. Young readers will learn essential amenities such as sending the invite and RSVP, the use for all of those different forks, how to politely sip soup and engage in delightful (not dreadful) conversation, and writing thank-you notes. Sharing a meal has never been this exciting and funny.

TERRIFIC TABLE MANNERS teaches children the appropriate way to act when invited to a formal dinner party. The hostess's name is Prudence and she's the picture of proper manners. It starts by sitting up straight and putting your napkin in your lap. There's even a layout of how the table should be set up with the plates, napkins, and utensils.

There's a rhyming scheme to the book that makes it more interesting for children to read. The humor is an added bonus to bring a smile to their faces. The illustrations are simple and have soft colors. I like how everything goes out the window in the end because it makes it more realistic. In the back of the book, the author summarizes the lessons so children can enjoy the read and then get to the learning. The topics they brush on are the invitation, the table, conversations, and what to do during each course of the meal.

Final Verdict: TERRIFIC TABLE MANNERS is a great book for children who want to be proper like royalty with a dash of humor. It's also a good way for parents to introduce table manners to their children, which is usually lacking in these times.
