IT’S A JUNGLE OUT THERE!

Tame Your Manners™ at K.A.M.P. Safari is a fun, meaningful and most importantly, memorable way for a child to learn manners. Any adult or child who reads this book will delight in the clever illustrations and correlations of animal characteristics to the manners advice.

Phrases like Lions Don’t Need to Roar, Don’t Be a Whino Rhino, and Stand Tall like a Giraffe will be forever fixed in a reader’s mind.

What to expect: Social Graces, Manners, Etiquette

We all know it’s a jungle out there, so it might be time to head to K.A.M.P. (Kids’ Animals & Manners Program)! Using wild animals and their traits as examples on how to and how not to behave in social and home settings, author Loretta Neff provides kids with an enjoyable and humorous approach to improving manners and etiquette and creating relatable experiences that put the lessons of social graces into perspective—including bullying.

Tame Your Manners

“Don’t be a wild, loud laughing hyena …

unless doing so won’t disturb others!”

Here is a glimpse at what is covered: giving and receiving, table manners, confidence, poise, respect for self and others, graciousness, and sportsmanship.

Tame Your Manners Book

The illustrations and format will appeal to the younger readers and the short paragraphs and bullet points make the information digestible for everyone. While some kids will plow right through this book, others will need to take it one digestible chapter at a time. Parents, caregivers and teachers that read along will even get some subtle reminders and useful tidbits to put into practice; and they can add some extra fun to the learning experience by providing opportunities to practice the lessons from the book—such as hosting a dinner party for safari animals.

This is an educational tool that children will enjoy reading on their own or in a group setting being led by a teacher. Thank you, Loretta Neff, for providing a well-written and entertaining resource that teaches important life skills.
