Table Talk: A Book about Table Mannersvolume 7 (Building Relationships #7) (Paperback)
Bad table manners are hard to stomach. I am the Table, and lately I've been seeing a lot that I just don't like.Some kids (and a few adults, too ) forget to wash their sticky, gooey, germy hands. EEEWWWW Others chew with their mouths wide open, letting bits of food fly. Their spit lands on everything... even on my shapely legs. HOW GROSS And then some people are glued to their cell phones and video games. HOW RUDE And why is there so much screeching, reaching, shoving and belching -yes belching- around me? Won't you please help me make it all stop? Award-winning author Julia Cook serves up a satisfying message about the importance of using good manners at the table.
