Carol was ready to go to school. She woke up, washed her face, brushed her teeth, took her backpack, and went down into the kitchen to have breakfast. She wished her mother good morning, sat in front of her plate, and bowed her head and said her prayers. Every day before she went to school, Carol walked next door to Mr. Meek, an elderly gentleman of eighty-five years, and picked up the morning newspaper for him. She always wished the school bus driver good morning before getting into the bus and her class teacher good morning when entering the classroom. Whether she was at home or on the school bus or in school, Carol had impeccable manners and her mother was proud of her. Carol always ended the day by thanking God for giving her parents who taught her good manners.
My Parents Taught Me Good Manners by Cathy Russell is about having good manners and the author makes the concept tangible through the story of Carol. It is a good story for parents and tutors to read out to children to teach them when and how to use the magic words 'please, thank you, I'm sorry', etc. in an entertaining way without making it sound boring. Giulia Lampos brings the concept, the story, and the characters to life with her beautiful and colorful illustrations. Teaching children manners can be difficult and the author makes that task easy through this story. This book is definitely a must-have in homes where there are children, and also in school libraries for tutors to help students have good manners and also to show kindness and compassion towards others.
