When poor manners are present, Forkman will be there to save the day! Join Kathryn and William as they learn how to load the dishwasher properly and avoid inappropriate distractions at the table with the help of all their utensil friends. This second book in the Adventures of Forkman series is a great introduction to mealtime etiquette for readers of all ages.
What a wonderful book teaching children about manners at the dinner table as well as how to help clean up. I think most children think that burping & tooting are the funniest things ever, but they aren’t for the dinner table. If possible they can excuse themselves, but if one sneaks out we should say excuse me. Forkman also teaches children how to load a dishwasher, including putting knives point down so that no one gets cut on accident.
We really enjoyed reading this book! It’s got the cutest illustrations to go along with the story. The book itself is a gorgeous hardcover. I can’t wait to see what Forkman comes up with next!
Tiffany Caldwell: I have worked with children for over thirteen years and every year basic manners become less evident. When I was growing up, my sisters and I took etiquette classes during the summer while we visited our grandparents. Etiquette was always a big part of our upbringing. When we would have our family dinners, my dad, W.R. MacKenzie, would make our utensils come to life as we were eating. Forkman became a part of our dinner routine! I am a mother of three great kids and military wife to my hero. A few years ago, I told my dad we needed to start writing our story. We are so excited to share Forkman with the world!
W.R. MacKenzie: I spent thirty-nine years in the bakery business. After I retired and my four children were grown, I felt it was time to share the importance of the family meal with the world. The Adventures of Forkman teaches children how to properly conduct themselves at the table. Our books are filled with characters all children can relate with and I believe Forkman and his crew will help children of all ages learn manners and table etiquette.
