Mind Your Manners

With Thanksgiving dinner coming soon I thought we could use a lesson in table manners.  The kids and I get such a kick out of this book.  It's taken directly from a 19th century etiquette book for children.  The pictures are hilarious and there's a twist on who is the worst behaved at dinner.

Dianne Goode 2005

I particularly like:
Frown not, nor murmur if there be any thing at the table which thy parents or strangers with them eat of, whilst thou hast none given thee.

Put not a bit into thy mouth till the former be swallowed.
