Thank you to Capstone for the opportunity to review this book.

Terrible, Awful, Horrible Manners! By Beth Brackenis the story of a boy named Pete who…well, you can probably guess by the title what kind of manners Pete has. Pete’s family decides to team up and teach him a lesson about good manners. The adorable illustrations in this book were done by Richard Watson.

I loved this book. Loved it. It teaches a great lesson about manners, but does so in a funny way that is sure to entertain young kids. I read this with my 2 year old, and he laughed the whole way through. I can just imagine my students cracking up over this one, especially my little boys. Most of the boys in my class could be Pete; I am constantly reminding them to say excuse me and to use their napkins. Terrible, Awful, Horrible Manners! reminds children of proper etiquette, but does so in a way that won’t make them feel bad. Additionally, Richard Watson’s illustrations are colorful and fun, and I even loved the “handwriting style” font chosen for the text. Truly a great book.

Do I recommend Terrible, Awful, Horrible Manners!? Well, I plan on purchasing a copy to add to my library at school, if that tells you anything. If you have a preschooler or early elementary-aged child, they will love this book. I highly suggest picking up a copy!

Terrible, Awful, Horrible Manners! is 32 pages long and is published by Capstone.
