Is it time for some life lessons in manners?  Check out this list of over 20 kids books about manners.

No matter where we go, I am constantly reminded of why I teach my children manners.  It seems like everywhere, kids are running rampant without their manners upsetting others in the process.  It also becomes pretty clear whether or not parents try to instill these manners in their children.

It’s frustrating, to say the least when your children have been waiting patiently in a line to do an activity, only to be cut in front of by children who just don’t know to be thoughtful of others.  Beyond that, though, it’s irritating when the parent acts like it’s not only normal but acceptable.

And, then I have to explain to my kids that some people don’t understand manners, but those who use manners make it a practice to be kind and thoughtful and that this isn’t their world.  

We share, take turns, and say please and thank you.  And, people will be appreciative of their efforts to use their manners way more than if they didn’t try at all.

And, now that my kids are in school, I get regular reminders of why we work so hard to teach our kids manners.  Every one of their teachers has thanked us at least once for having well-behaved and well-mannered children.

They listen when they’re supposed to, talks when it’s okay, and say please and thank you.

They do make mistakes and talk out of turn or get excited and forget about lines.  They’re kids, after all.  But, we’re always reminding them how important their manners are.

Manners are important for kids to learn, but I don’t teach them solely through actions at home.  We use books as teaching aids.

My daughter catches on to subjects and concepts pretty easily, so reading books is our go-to-activity when trying to explain something new.  And, we use this technique when we have to work on important childhood lessons.

It’s hard to gauge whether or not my son understands in the same way.  But, we continue to read.

We rely on books.  So, I’m sharing a big list of children’s books about manners with you.

I can tell from my personal experiences that parents have become quite aware of the importance of teaching their kids manners from an early age, which means, our society is heading towards a better future. Although, there is always room for improvement and books such as these can be really helpful in doing that.
