Table Manners for Kids

By Cindy Post Senning and Peggy Post

Since 1922, the name Emily Post has been America’s most trusted source for good table manners. Today, the third generation of Post authors, Peggy Post and Cindy Post Senning, Ed.D., offers children a comprehensive guide to good table manners in the 21st century. With lots of fun illustrations, Emily Post’s Table Manners for Kids isn’t just about manners for fancy parties or dinner at your grandmother’s house. It’s got lots of practical information you can use every day to improve your family dinners.

  • Which fork do I use?
  • How do you use chopsticks?
  • Is it okay to answer my cell phone during dinner?
  • What is the polite way to eat spaghetti?

These and other important questions are answered in this handy guide to eating without grossing people out. Pretty much everything you need to know to get you through any meal is here, from table settings to eating tricky food to holding up your end of a dinner conversation.
