Emily’s Everyday Manners

Remember learning the Magic Words?

The Magic Words were simple phrases your parents insisted upon at home, at school and while visiting friends and family. Please, Thank You, and You’re Welcome made people smile, impressed your aunts and uncles, and, though you didn’t realize it at the time, also made a good impression.

Those Magic Words, and other etiquette basics, come to life in Emily’s Everyday Manners, written by Peggy Post and Cindy Post Senning, Ed.D. and illustrated by Steve Björkman. Kids can read along and watch as young Emily and her best friend Ethan ride the school bus, romp on the playground, visit friends, and eat at restaurants—all while having fun and using their best manners.

From the most trusted name in etiquette, this charming picture book explains why everyone should know and use the social graces. With clever text, fun and colorful illustrations, and a large measure of humor, Peggy Post, Cindy Post Senning, and Steve Björkman make clear the importance of developing good character and encouraging children to genuinely care for and appreciate others.

Emily’s Everyday Manners is recommended for children age 4-7.
