By Penelope Carvalato.
Good manners and etiquette are as important today as they were a hundred years ago. Inspired by her research into the manners, history, and customs of the Titanic and Edwardian era, Penelope Carlevato presents a simple hands-on guide to help introduce children to proper etiquette and manners, as well as serve as a manual parents can reference for guidance. First Class Etiquette covers proper table manners for home and restaurants, special manners at the tea table, and the necessary skills to host a good tea party. With topics ranging from table settings, tea party invitations, and hostess etiquette, this charming book, illustrated by Carlevato’s granddaughter, also offers recipes for popular tea party foods like orange scones, curried chicken tea sandwiches, and shortbread cookies.
Penelope Carlevato’s easy-to-follow book engages children and parents by pointing out the importance of manners and hospitality, but also portraying how fun practicing the art of etiquette can be. Autographed by the author, 44 pages, full color, softcover.
