Dude, That’s Rude!

(Get Some Manners)

$8.95

Kids today need manners more than ever, and Dude, That’s Rude! makes it fun and easy to get some. Full-color cartoons and kid-friendly text teach the basics of polite behavior in all kinds of situations—at home, at school, in the bathroom, on the phone, at the mall, and more.

Kids learn Power Words to use and P.U. Words to avoid, why their family deserves their best manners, and the essentials of e-tiquette (politeness online). It seems like light reading, but it’s serious stuff: Manners for kids are major social skills, and this book gives them a great start.

Praise for Dude, That's Rude!:
“Boys will love this! Rather than getting yelled or preached at, this book takes a fun look at typical forms of rudeness and makes them totally uncool. Being polite, kind to others, is a first step in helping a child walk the talk of social justice.”—Reach and Teach, independent bookstore in San Mateo, California

“In a humorous but informative fashion, Dude, That’s Rude! will provide kids with the necessary do’s and don’ts of good manners, the reasons why they are important, and lots of effective ‘smooth moves’ for sticky situations.”—The Stratford Gazette
