Teaching manners to small children (in my house at least) involves a lot of reminders to use words such as ‘please’ and ‘thank you’.
It can make you feel like a broken record at times but the hope is that, through repetition, good manners will become second nature.
But if, like me, you are tired of serving every meal or task with the same lecture on etiquette, why not change up the approach?
There are plenty of beautiful books focused on teaching good manners to children using words and scenarios they can understand.
Books teaching children to be polite
Books teaching children about table manners

We would love to know what books you have found helpful for teaching your little ones good manners.
