Missy Mistake lives in a small town in Pennsylvania and is ten years old. Everyone calls her Miss Mistake. Her best friend's name is Manner Lee and she calls him Mannie. He is polite and smart and helps Missy a lot. Mannie has good manners but Missy does not pay too much attention to manners, especially on a bad day. Mannie thinks that everyone should be treated properly and there are no excuses for behaving rudely. Missy's grandparents are going to visit her family for a week and her mother has given Missy's room to them during their stay. Missy is not too happy about it and she wants them to use the couch but her mother tells her that she should show respect to her grandparents.

Miss Mistake: Mind Your Manners by Lisa Butowsky and Donna Bostany is a wonderful book that teaches children basic manners with the help of Missy, her family, and Mannie. The illustrations by Donna Bostany make the concept clear and help readers comprehend what the authors are trying to convey. It is the perfect storybook for school and homes when it comes to teaching children manners in an interesting way without sounding too preachy and making it boring. I like the authors' approach to the topic and they make the characters and the situations real and relatable. Reading this book will definitely help children to behave properly. The question and answer session toward the end of the story is useful and helpful when it comes to learning good manners.
