About the Book

When it comes to manners, there are just so many things to remember! How do you act when you meet a new friend? What do you do when you cough or sneeze? How do you behave at the dinner table? There are specific customs for all types of interactions we have with other people. When we remember to be polite and courteous, the people we meet will appreciate our friendly and pleasant actions. These rules of behavior are very important—they are your manners—and they must be practiced every day. One little girl is worried she has lost the manners her mother and father worked so hard to teach her. She asks her readers to please help find them somewhere inside the book. Follow along as she reviews the lessons children and adults learn to succeed in every aspect of life.

About the Author

Gail Reed and her husband, Travis, live in Evans, Georgia. She has two adult daughters, Shelli and Whitney, and five grandchildren. After retiring from forty years of teaching, Mrs. Reed decided she still wanted to educate children. This book was written to help young people develop the social skills needed for success. Leonard Jones is a self-taught folk artist from Lincolnton, Georgia. He lives a very simple life in a house with no electricity or running water. He does many of his paintings on old roofing tin with enamel house paint, adding the subjects with his fingers, leaving visible fingerprints in the artwork.
