Recommended Reading for Little Ladies


Emilie Barnes is one of my favorite authors, so I thought I would share with you a wonderful book that she has written, entitled, “A Little Book of Manners, Courtesy and Kindness for Young Ladies”.   This simple – yet gorgeous book is perfect for ‘Little Ladies’, ages from 4-7 years old. With illustrations by talented artist Michal Sparks, Emile Marie makes basic manners fun and enjoyable.

Manners can be Fun!
Wouldn’t it be great to know how to set the table just right…and what to say to somebody you’ve just met… and the right words to use when you answer the phone?

Emilie Marie is learning all of these things and you can learn with her!

Practicing how to make every one feel welcome will make you happy, too.
You’ll have a wonderful time making pretty invitations for a special tea party or planning the best sleepover ever for your friends.
And you can make placemats together to help remember what you learn!

Manners are more than simple rules to remember – they’re a way of showing love!

Just a sample of the chapters covered are:
• “Please, Thank You, and Aunt Evelyn” – Why I’m glad I’m learning manners
• “Happy to Meet You!” – Meeting and greeting manners
• “Emilie Marie Speaking” – Telephone manners
• “Let’s Go Over to My House!” – playtime and visiting manners
and much more…

    Hi Clare,

    Just found your site today. Emilie Barnes is one of my favourite authors also. Do you think it is fine to say, after being introduced to someone, “I’m happy to meet you”? I notice this in the insert you have above
