This is a fun little book and we have enjoyed inventing other characters for it as well. Using humor in a positive way as part of correction can help get the message home quicker.

HASH(0x9de19408) out of 5 stars Manners CAN be fun (and funny!) 3 Aug. 2004
By Alleeum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Oh, how I have missed this book. My grandmother passed my mother's edition on to me when I was little, and its illustrations and funny stories have stayed with me all this time. I was heartbroken when I lost it, but as I didn't know the title or the author, I wasn't able to find it anywhere. This reprint has made me SO happy!

HASH(0x9e7168b8) out of 5 stars loved it but something is missing 26 Dec. 2004
By May May - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I was so happy to see this book back in publication. I remember it VERY well, but when I bought my new copy for my kids, there seems to be a page or two missing!!! Something happened to The Burpers, The Coughers and the Sneezers!!! The pages that said "Be Kind to Animals, They Have Feelings,Too" was in the middle of the book instead of at teh end, and there were pages at the end to put notes of "my own manners" and I don't remember those pages ever being there before.

I miss the Burpers, etc. I should notify the publisher, too.

But still, this book is wonderful.

HASH(0x9dfdd2f4) out of 5 stars Excellent and poignant look at how kids can learn manners. 22 Aug. 1999
By Dave Morizot (dmmorizot@aol.com) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Mr. Leaf's book was one of the cornerstones of our household, and my brother and I were constantly instructed to "sit down and read the manner's book." This book is very easy for children to comprehend, and it is an excelent way for parents to get their kids to a more "civil" state. I still love this book!

HASH(0x9e417840) out of 5 stars great book but you will have to scale down for toddlers 11 Sept. 2006
By Jennifer Murphy-spivey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
munro leaf's books in this series are excellent but before i bought it i checked it out at the library and i am glad i did. the concept is great but even for my 3 yr old daughter who will sit still for a book with great patience, she was losing interest. So i am just reviewing to share with others that you may have to shorten it as you read it to toddlers but it is a terrific series and would be perfect for children age 4 and up.

HASH(0x9e8b699c) out of 5 stars The only antidote to psychobabble 19 April 1999
By W. K. Aiken - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Library Binding
Lost in a sea of new-age mumblings, half-congealed PC semi-truths and "value-neutral" nonsense? Then, if you never do anything else for your kids, find a copy of this and Leaf's other gems and use them as often as you use the TV's remote control. They're full of the no-nonsense, boiled down "rules to live by" that so well defined the simpler ages gone by. To agree with another reviewer, this and the others probably would be banned today. But, when you consider who it is that bans books along with what's acceptable and what isn't by today's standards, it might be time to resurrect ol' Munro and let him have another go at our kids. Until somebody with the wisdom and resource to do that comes along and does, a well-used copy suits me just fine, thank you.
