Part of the "Mind Your Manners" series, this book dramatizes the small difficulties kids encounter in a typical school day and invites readers to consider their own habits and attitudes. As the book's characters learn brief lessons in manners, readers start to see the right way to behave in dozens of school situations. Norah learns to share her books, Ann learns to wash her hands after recess, and John learns to be quiet and pay attention while the teacher is speaking. With dozens of short, real-world examples and plenty of gentle guidance, this book is a great way to start discussions and help children make their time in school pleasant and productive — for themselves and for their teachers and classmates. Included at the back of the book are parent guidelines and four classroom activities.
