A Quest for Good Manners

My 3 children loved this app, as well as the hard cover book. 5 year old said - " I like the dragon. He's cute!" 10 year old said, "I liked it - good message in a well written story." (yes she said that) But the best response goes to the 8 year old, "I liked the message - use good manners - get what you want!" Whatever it takes to get an 8 year old to speak politely! Lefranc tells a great story and Neale's illustrations tie it together perfectly. Excellent!

Great book and message

Karen has done an amazing job with this book! The art work is beautiful and draws you into this colorful world in which good manners matter! The story is well written, fun and has a good purpose. Kids now need more guidance than ever in order to become polite and respectful adults. This book will make that process fun! It is interactive and has way more to offer than others of it's kind. Great job and a great buy!

Fantastic App

This app is wonderful. My kids love the story and the pictures are beautiful. They especially enjoy touching the characters on the ipad with their fingers to hear sound-effects throughout the story. If you are a parent of children from 2 - 7, get this app - your kids will thank you.
