“The book Grace and Courtesy is excellent.  I am working in a Public School kindergarten class and my students love it.  We read one page and keep looking at it for a day or more. The gentle pictures and one thought on each page captures their attention and we refer back to it throughout our day.  Thanks.”  —Rosemary
