Timberdoodle's review
 
Uncertain if your child needs some improvement in his social graces? Here is a clue: if your child has ever said to a hostess that the meal looks wonderful, but tastes disgusting, as our precious Pearl did at 3, then some additional effort on your part may be necessary! There are many colorful storybooks that try to teach manners with story or verse, but Little Annie's Art Book of Etiquette & Good Manners utilizes our favorite method: hands-on.

Employing a delightful text, it teaches social graces using generous amounts of Scripture along with simple art assignments. Lessons on dinner etiquette, being a good listener, writing a thank you note, discerning what quality time is and much more are all reinforced with appealing and easy art lessons. I cannot imagine a more memorable or more agreeable way to teach a young child to forsake his own natural desires and look to the needs of others. Ninety pages, recommended by the author for ages 4 - 7, but I think that even an 8- to 10-year-old would enjoy the assignments and remember the lessons.

Lessons may be done directly in the text or copied for in-home use.

Recommended materials: A set of crayons or colored pencils and a large drawing pencil.
Features
  • Sketch book and cut and paste sections included in the back of the text.

    Great content, but poorly quality materials May 16, 2015
    Reviewer: Jason K.  
    I love the content of this book, but its pages don't seem to be able to stay in the book. We're only on page 16 and already having to sort through loose pages. Maybe we just got a dud.

    Not a great match for us April 26, 2014
    Reviewer: Tricia  
    I got this as a gentle way to introduce my shy but strong-willed 5-year-old to some social graces. She enjoyed some of it, but I often felt uncomfortable with the way it was presented. The Bible verses and art projects seemed quite random and not well matched to the manners. The level of difficulty for the art activities varied widely. I also found many of the manners presented to be a bit on the old-fashioned side--not bad to know about, but not as useful as it could be for us. I was hoping for something a bit more direct and heart-based--formal ways to express a kind heart. However, if you're looking for some amusing art activities and reminders of longstanding social mores, this book is not bad.

    Little Annie's Art Book October 10, 2013
    Reviewer: Elizabeth M.  
    My daughter loves this book. She would rather do this book then any of her other ones. I love the book as it is an easy to follow and gives short and simple verses from the Bible that she can understand.

    Social Graces and Art January 15, 2013
    Reviewer: Meredith the Home Educating Mama  
    There's plenty to be learned from Little Annie and plenty of fun to be had doing so. Each lesson is self-explanatory. An older sibling could easily help a younger one. Pre-Readers and Early Readers may need some direction and assistance in doing the lessons. This is not a book to teach drawing skills (although there is a *bit* of that), but mainly it is to practice skills already learned or have fun. The emphasis of this book is learning manners and good etiquette. Each lesson has a short Bible verse at the top of the page, i.e. "Offer hospitality to one another....." and the lesson below the hospitality verse talks about having someone for dinner and that they brought along a bouquet of flowers. The assignment is to draw a bouquet of flowers and there is some direction as to how to draw those. Then instructed is going outside and collecting some wildflowers to press and use later (directions included) on a thank-you card. There are a few projects such as the pressed flowers, but primarily the lessons are done on the single page that you can copy for your student.

    Not What I Was Looking For November 27, 2012
    Reviewer: MamaSon  
    I am sure this is great, but not my style...seemed to busy with projects. I wanted to have maybe a few projects, but mostly instruction. Great for artsy craft oriented people. I am not one. I need something more practical for many kids. Maybe this is right for one or two children households or one with older kids helping with little ones.
