Kids today need manners more than ever and Dude, That's Rude! makes it fun and easy to get some. Full-color cartoons and kid-friendly text teach the basics of polite behavior in all kinds of situations while keeping young readers entertained on every page. Kids learn Power Words to use and P.U. Words to avoid, why their family deserves their best manners, how to yawn, how to burp, how to meet new people, how to treat a guest and be one, the right ways to use phones (including cell phones) school manners, mall manners, body manners, potty manners, the Top Ten Table Manners, and the essentials of e-tiquette (politeness online). It may seem like light reading, but it's serious stuff: Manners are major social skills, and Dude, That's Rude! gives kids a great start.

"Boys will love this! Rather than getting yelled or preached at, this book takes a fun look at typical forms of rudeness and makes them totally uncool. Being polite, kind to others, is a first step in helping a child walk the talk of social justice". -- Reach and Teach
