The regrettable fact is that the subject of manners is not much discussed anymore, and good manners seem practiced even less. But good manners are a prerequisite for the growth of moral character; they are the habits of conduct and behavior by which we express in the most ordinary circumstances our fundamental respect for others, whether parents, friends, colleagues, or strangers. Fortunately, Karen Santorum has produced for parents and teachers a wonderfully rich and instructive anthology to help instill good manners in our children--and stand against a decline of civility and a coarsening of our common life. Under such headings as "Honor Your Mother and Father," "Please and Thank You," "No Hurtful Words," "Good Behavior in Sport," and "Showing Respect for Country," Everyday Graces features stories and poems that will develop and enrich the moral imagination. This marvelous anthology features classic selections from such well-known authors as Hans Christian Anderson, Beatrix Potter, Mark Twain, Frances Hodgson Burnett, C. S. Lewis, Max Lucado, and Arnold Lobel, as well as forgotten gems that deserve a new hearing. Mrs. Santorum writes that this anthology grew out of the frustration of not being able to find a book on manners that instructs through stories rather than by rules of dos and don'ts. She and her husband tried and tested many of these selections on their six children. Each of the selections is briefly introduced with a thoughtful commentary at the close, producing an informality and intimacy that is inviting and infectious. Find out why Everyday Graces has become a beloved feature in homes, schools, churches, and libraries across America.… (mer)

Summary: This book is filled with poems and other literature that is directed towards childrens manners and habits. It talks about things such as obeying your parents to good table manners.
Personal reaction: I think this book is a clever way to teach values to children.
Classroom extensions: I could use this in a unit about manners. Another idea would be to have children use the table manners they learned at lunch time or snack time.

A wonderful book for anyone looking to instill character traits and manners with their children through literature. The author blends classic stories and poems with contemporary authors. The book is thoughtfully divided in sections such as: dressing, caring for the sick, kindness towards animals, good sportsmanship, telling the truth, etc. The author includes a thoughtful introduction or post script to each piece which further illustrates the character trait, or etiquette lesson. This can be read to the child or used as a guide by the parent/teacher.

I have no doubt that this will be a useful resource in our homeschool library and highly recommend it for others! ( )
