Title: Manners Are Free
Author: M.B. Jones
Illustrator: Kathy Kerber
Format: Paperback, 24 pages
My little grand-daughter game me the impetus to write my first book, “Manners Are Free.” I feel strongly that manners are very important throughout life, and they seem to have fallen by the wayside. It’s never too early to teach children manners, and what better way than to read them a book that is fun and also begins the process of teaching them basic manners.
Manners Are Free by M.B. Jones is a delightful and informative children’s book with full page pictures. The message of the book is very clear and that is that it is never to early to start teaching your children manners. I was really excited to read this book to my son because manners are something that we take very seriously in our house and my son constantly needs to be reminded despite our efforts. M.B. Jones wrote Manners Are Free it in a way that children will understand which is great! I really like the book is written in rhyme however some of the lines are stretched and drawn out in order to make them rhyme. It made it a little hard to read but my son didn’t even notice.
My son really enjoyed the book. He stayed focused throughout it all and when we talked about it afterwards, he was able to tell me when to say please or excuse me and various other manners. He also said that he really liked the book and that he would like me to read it to me again.
Overall we both enjoyed the book and it will definitely be read again in our house.
