Manners Can Be Fun

We have an enormous collection of vintage children’s books. Some of them are worth keeping but others aren’t very interesting. I’m not sure where this one falls. I’m tickled by the title, though. Manners can be fun? More like Manners might save your life, from your mother.

This book was already falling apart so I removed the binding and scanned it for your enjoyment. It was copyrighted in 1936 and is now public domain. Enjoy the timeless lessons.

I just got back last night from a whole week away (I was posting from the past!) and need to get my feet under me. While I don’t have any pictures to post today, I am proud to say that I didn’t buy one thing while away. Those knick-knacks just aren’t appealing anymore.

  1. Wow, that was horrifying. LOL Don’t get me wrong, I do believe manners are important and am horrified at how many kids and adults now a days just don’t seem to have any at all. But that book is scary. The grammar is horrible and the pictures look like they were drawn by a 5 year old. lol Though I did get a few chuckles from your commentary, especially “Meeting people is gender specific”. That one had me rolling. lol

    • I know! It’s the crappiest book ever. Who the hell draws like that? Like there aren’t gobs of great artists. I guess it was easier back in the 50s to get published.
