Spring is finally here (even if there will still be a few more cool days - blackberry winter) and summer won't be far behind. Before long we'll all be busy outdoors trying to keep ahead of the grass and weeds while wishing we had cooler temperatures.
I have a short and sweet book review to share with you today. Since the Easter holiday always brings thoughts of children and Easter egg hunts to mind, I thought this would be a perfect time to review a children's book.
For a delightful little book to encourage politeness for your youngsters, pickup a copy of "Miss Mandy Manners" by Michelle Berg.
The book tells how Miss Mandy interacts with her friends and family. In addition, it tells how she acts while in school and at play dates. The book re-enforces a positive message of always being polite.
"Miss Mandy Manners" is beautifully illustrated by Karl Struss.
The final line in the book sums up of the focus of the story, "Being a nice person makes you liked by everyone."

FTC Full Disclosure - This book was sent to me by the author in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.
*****I also have winners to announce for Joanne Kennedy's "Cowboy Trouble" giveaway. Congratulations goes to Carol from Under the Tiki Hut and Marvin also known as The Old Silly. Your books will soon be on the way. Thanks to both winners and everyone who stopped by and commented on Joanne's post.
Remember, have a fun day and check back here at Thoughts in Progress next week for a wonderful lineup of great authors who will be dropping by to share their thoughts on writing.
