From Jennifer Scott—author of the New York Times bestselling Madame Chic series and founder of the Daily Connoisseur blog—comes this playful take on manners and being a good global citizen. Parents and younger children work together to read about a wide range of topics: communication, table manners, tidiness, thinking of others, grooming, and health. Activities, learning games, fill-in-the-blanks, letter-writing exercises, recipes (for food and for slime!), and some fun songs and rhymes help kids learn concepts and practice good behaviors. Featuring charming illustrations and go-to advice from a trusted source, this is a timely guide for raising well-mannered, neat, and gracious children for parents, grandparents, and children of reading age.

I love Paris and recently stumbled upon the author’s first book, Lessons from Madame Chic, an entrancing account of her time in the City of Light as a foreign exchange student. She self-published that very successful memoir and has gone on to develop a cottage industry of sorts with her subsequent books and online presence, a feat I hope to duplicate as I write my first memoir. I also love the colorfully chic illustrations that characterize her covers, and that’s what drew me to her latest, CONNOISSEUR KIDS. It’s an urbane guide to raising well-behaved children and one I’d love to give to every parent in the restaurant attached to our fave Starbucks. Each night, toddlers are let loose to run free in the connecting public space, yelling and doing gymnastics on nearby chairs and tables. When asked politely to mind their progeny, parents look aghast, as if one is asking them to effect world peace. All we really want is peace in our little realm as we quietly talk and sip our lattes. Is that too much to ask? Not if Jennifer is successful with her latest foray into cosmopolitan good manners. I for one pray she succeeds, and will be singing her praises and that of this charming work. God bless you, Ms. Scott! 5/5 Pub Date 10 Sep 2019.
