A Quest For Good Manners
Rosalind is a young princess who has a pet dragon, Sparkler, and horrible manners. Her mother gives her three days to find good manners or she will banish the dragon. Rosalind leaves on her quest with Sparkler, and on the way she finds a wizard who gives her a golden fork, a fairy who teaches her the beauty of "please" and "thank you", and Lady Grace who teaches the pair table manners.
I can't begin to tell you how adorable this book is. The pictures are just delightful and correlate beautifully with the story. The story is easy to understand and well-structured, making it a great one to read to small children as well as those pushing Kindergarten and above. I just love the three people that Rosalind finds on her quest that teach her proper manners, and it's a lovely and creative way to instruct. It's on Amazon, and I cannot wait to give this book as a gift to my pregnant friends!
