"Teach a child to choose the right path, and when he is older he will remain upon it." Proverbs 22:6

This book is dedicated to all the well mannered home schooled children we have met across America.

"Teaching your children manners is also teaching them values, ethics, and morals. A child's character develops and is shaped through their own life experiences and through the influence and teaching of other people, especially those whom they are close to and love. In the best of worlds, parents and children should be polite to each other more than to anyone else." Letitia Baldrige, The New Manners of the 90’s 5


The Golden Rule "Love Your Neighbor As Yourself." Mark 12:31 The 2nd Commandment sums up all the good rules of etiquette, manners and politeness. To simplify, all we need to do is treat everyone as if they are very special. We should always show love, kindness and respect to others. Little Annie is going to be our role model for this book of etiquette. So have your art materials ready and let's learn God's way to good manners. “Hello. My name is Annie. I will be your hostess for the entire book. So, bring along your colored pencils, scissors and glue and follow me, please.�

"All ten (commandments) are wrapped up in this one, to love your neighbor as you love yourself." Romans 13:9 6


“Parents who read Bible stories every night to their children, explaining the moral lessons contained in those pages, instill a respect not only for God but for other human beings in the hearts of their children. A respect for God and for other human beings is, after all, the foundation of manners, morals, ethics and values." Letitia Baldrige

Peers

A friend loves at all times." 7

Proverbs 17:17


"Tis better to be alone, than in bad company." George Washington

Friendship Peers are not pears! A peer is a person who has the same standing with another, such as the same age, the same grade, and so forth. Your friends are generally considered your peers. Peers can be a good influence or a bad influence on you. But what's more important is that you can be a good influence on them, especially by using etiquette and good manners.

Assignment:

Draw and color two pears. Put funny faces on them. When finished, color them in with your yellow and green colored pencils.

Peers: Your friends. 8


"A person who shows himself friendly will have many friends." Proverbs 18:24

"Bad company corrupts good morals."

I Corinthians 15:33

Overlapping See if you can overlap the balloons. Overlapping means placing one in front of another.

Warm Colors: Red Yellow Orange

Cool Colors: Blue Green Violet

Annie's peers like her. Do you know why? Because she is always pleasant to them. Some of Annie's friends are very well-behaved and some are not well-behaved. Are you well-behaved? Can you draw and color 3 balloons in each of Annie's hands? Then, draw a happy face on 3 of them and a sad face on the other 3. Color the happy faces with warm colors and the sad faces with cool colors. 11


"A cheerful look brings joy to the heart." Proverbs 15:30 We have told you that some of Annie's friends are not nice all of the time. Sometimes they may become moody. Their personalities might change to: pouty, whiny, angry, stubborn and so on. Look at the six faces below. Do you know what their moods are? Are they excited, angry, pouty, happy, stubborn or pleasant? Write the word that best describes them underneath each face.

"Put on a Happy Face!"

Annie's desire is to always have a pleasant personality. However, some of her best friends let their feelings show on their faces. Can you draw three faces above in A, B and C. Give each face a different mood. 12
