Manners Can Be Fun

Through stick figure drawings and a brief text, beloved and bestselling children’s author, Munro Leaf explains why good manners are important. Kirkus believes Manners Can Be Fun to be the author’s “best, both in idea and execution. Manners books are perennials—hardy ones at that—and this makes first steps in etiquette easy and fun.” The children’s classic begins: “Having good manners is really just living with other people pleasantly.” This pleasant book will explain to children why good conduct is essential in the household, on the playground, and beyond.

Munro Leaf is best known for How to Behave and Why and The Story of Ferdinand, which was an overnight international sensation upon its release in 1936.
