Teach children good manners using Whoopi’s Big Book of Manners. The picture book of manners is written by the Oscar winning actress, Whoopi Goldberg. It is an excellent book to teach children the rules of etiquette. Use the book in both the home and classroom.
Many children are unaware how to conduct themselves in polite society. Whoopi Goldberg explains to children the appropriate times to say please, thank you and you’re welcome. These are little words, but so important when interacting with others.
Also, Whoopi’s Big Books of Manners teach children correct table manners. It is said so many of today’s young executives have horrible table manners. Take time to train children now, so they are not uncouth later in life.
Ms. Goldberg shares with children good manners to use when attending the movies, theater and sporting events. Children are banned from some of these events due to their manners. It is not their fault; it is their lack of home training. Remember parents, children's lack of manners, is a reflection on you!
In Whoopi’s Big Book of Manners, good telephone manners and elevator manners are shared. How many times have you placed a call only to hear a child answer saying, “What?” It is so rude. Use the book to teach young children the correct way to answer a telephone and use the elevator.
Take time and use Whoopi’s Big Book of Manners to educate children. This knowledge will take children a long way in life. She uses humor and bright illustrations in the children’s picture book.
Thank you, Whoopi Goldberg for writing the picture book. I know, if she read this, she would respond, “You’re Welcome.”
