Christmas Book on Manners

Although the holidays are "the most wonderful time of the year," they can also be a minefield of manners meltdowns as people rush through shopping malls, prepare elaborate meals, and open potentially disappointing presents with not-so-favorite relatives. It's especially challenging for small children, who don't know that they may hurt Grandma's feelings when they say, "Yuck! I hate fish!" or "I already have this doll!"

Cindy Post Senning, Ed.D., and Pegg Post have written Emily's Christmas Gifts (Collins; September 2008; $16.99) as a reminder of how to keep the holiday spirit alive. In this book, young Emily expresses how much she loves giving gifts, but she tells young readers that the most important gifts don't go under the tree. In her words, "These are the gifts of kindness and consideration. Even though they don't cost a cent, everyone appreciates them."
