About the Book

Emily Post’s Table Manners for Kids isn’t just about manners for fancy parties or dinner at grandma's house. It’s got lots of practical information to use every day to improve family dinners. With fun illustrations, step by step instructions, and an upbeat, modern tone, this is the perfect book to share with the 8- to 12-year-old in your life (or with anyone striving to improve their table manners).

Pretty much everything tweens need to know to get through any meal is here, from table settings to eating tricky food to holding up your end of a dinner conversation. The book includes easy to follow, helpful answers to such questions as:

  • Which fork do I use?
  • Is it okay to answer my cell phone during dinner?
  • What's the polite way to eat spaghetti?

"Excellent troubleshooting." (Kirkus) "This clearly written book offers practical advice that will help young people to feel more comfortable when dining with others and, of course, to avoid disgusting their companions.” (Booklist)

As a five-star review commented: "The information was great and I loved the step by step details. The way it's written works well for youth and adults."

Since 1922, the name Emily Post has been America’s most trusted source for good table manners. With Emily Post’s Table Manners for Kids, the third generation of Post authors, Peggy Post and Cindy Post Senning, Ed.D., offers children a comprehensive guide to good table manners in the 21st century.
