In writing “Manners & Tips for Caring Kids” Ramona Wood created the book she needed as a child—and searched for as a parent. Now she brushes up on her manners alongside her grandchildren as she reads this book with them.

It’s not just about manners. It’s the meaning behind the manners!

It’s about thinking…instead of just acting

This book offers a quick introduction to the Fruit of the Spirit. The 32 pages provide practical ways for kids to improve their manners and includes various other bible verses that build upon a particular attribute. Easy to read and understand text. The pages are colorful and not overly “fruity”. Author Ramona Wood created simple illustrations that add in visual understanding and interest. A nicely done book!

This book is a 2019 bronze medal Illumination winner in the education category. Illumination book awards are designed to honor and bring increased recognition to the year’s best new titles written and published with a Christian worldview.

I Can Be Kind: My First Manners Book

Paperback, 16 pages, recommended ages 4-7

Scripture teaches us to love our neighbors by treating them with kindness and respect. One aspect of kindness includes manners. Parents are looking for fun, creative ways to teach their children polite behavior in a society where rudeness is often the status quo. We believe I Can Be Kind is a great resource for parents, grandparents, and Sunday school teachers as they seek to develop these behaviors in their children.

This paperback has standard book-weight pages and the flaps fold out to extend the page. There is a sentence about having good manners and a bible verse under the flap. Although the text is good, we have been “reading” without the text. The illustrations provide enough example and the flaps are fun.

I Can Be Kind: My First Manners Book includes the following good behaviors: using kind words, helping with chores, waiting for a turn, saying please and thank you, helping someone, and having a great attitude.

Tyndale House Publishers provided an advanced reader copy of I Can Be Kind in return for this review. All opinions are entirely my own. No other compensation was received.
