Available July 2019. When children are kind, courteous, and respectful, people enjoy being around them and reciprocate with the same behavior. Use this English-Spanish bilingual book to teach manners and help young children understand the importance of showing politeness, speaking kindly, using basic courtesies (“please,” “thank you,” “excuse me”), and respecting the feelings of others. A section at the back of the book, in both English and Spanish, provides questions for discussion, scenarios, and role-play activities to help adults reinforce the book’s lessons and teach children social skills.
