Kids today need manners more than ever, and Dude, That’s Rude! makes it fun and easy to get some. Full-color cartoons and kid-friendly text teach the basics of polite behavior in all kinds of situations—at home, at school, in the bathroom, on the phone, at the mall, and more. Kids learn Power Words to use and P.U. Words to avoid, why their family deserves their best manners, and the essentials of e-tiquette (politeness online). It seems like light reading, but it’s serious stuff: Manners are major social skills, and this book gives kids a great start.

Students will love this book, but so will parents and teachers because it teaches manners even though in a humerous way.It teaches every thing from cell phone manners to passing gas. Kids will be rolling with laughter but learning just when and where it is okay to do these things.I would put this book on my independant reading shelf. Manners need to be taught all year. This book is so funny, it is sure to be a favorite.

Non-stuffy and humorous but accurate guide to good manners for kids and teens tho it is perfectly applicable to adults as well! I love how well the authors explain that good manners are a set of easily learnable behaviors/skills that show self-respect and make life more pleasant for all concerned. A key step to success... be it school, work or personal life. AMEN!

I try not to follow typical gender roles with my daughter so I bought a few different types of manners books. This one looked funny, and it is, but definitely geared for boys. I don't regret the purchase. We are still going to finish it. I mean, she should know how to identify respectful behavior in boys as well at a young age right? Overall, very cute.

This is a perfect book for 8yr old boys! We have been reading it together and there is never a dull moment! The book reinforces proper "rules of etiquette", but makes you laugh at the same time!

This is self-help for kids that works. It is about MANNERS, a topic too often forgotten and ignored. It includes polite words, rude words, mall manners, school manners, table manners, how to treat guests, online e-tiquette and more. It is easy to read aloud and the kids enjoy finding out if they know the difference between good manners and bad manners. They will be the ones to benefit as they go through life without offending the adults in their midst. Some kids do not learn quickly by example and osmosis. Others do not have enough good examples in their life. They all really need the information in this book.
