Hi, this is Patrice Badami, with Acorn to Tree children’s book review. Today I have a book called Blurb’s Book of Manners, and it’s from Cindy Derby. She’s a Caldecott honor winner. And here’s an example of the beautiful artwork that you’re going to find in the book. So the story is about this little character here, who is very concerned with the behavior of this character. And it’s an interesting story because as it goes on in the story, she continues to correct Blurp and he doesn’t know any better. So it teaches you that sometimes telling someone they don’t have manners isn’t very good manners at all. So Blurps Book of Manners from Cindy Derby Caldicott Honor winner, beautiful pictures, see if you could find it and share it with your family.
