As a mother of four, Jennifer L. Scott is no stranger to a case of the wiggles at dinner. Author of the New York Times bestselling “Madame Chic” series and founder of The Daily Connoisseur blog, Scott’s newest book, “Connoisseur Kids,” inspires parents and kids to work together and create healthy habits and manners that will last a lifetime.
An interactive book that’s easy to follow, “Connoisseur Kids” offers fun and challenging activities for the whole family. Chapter by chapter, your kids will learn to become well-rounded connoisseurs of communication, table manners, tidiness, thinking of others, grooming and health. Filled with learning games, rhymes, recipes and interactive assignments, the book is sure to keep families entertained. Complementing the charming illustrations in each chapter, Scott’s rhyming reminders, such as, “When you take the time to say please, it puts people at ease,” will have your kids singing all day.
While the book starts off with simple concepts, including standing up straight and setting a proper table, the topics progress to more complex habits, such as creating a routine and the importance of putting others before ourselves.
Scott’s creative approach to ordinary tasks such as getting dressed and cleaning the room brings this book to life. “Can you imagine if your waiter served your table but slammed down your plates and complained the whole time he was doing his job?” asks Scott in the “Thinking of Others” chapter. “That would be very unpleasant for you. That’s why when we serve others, we want to do it with a happy heart.”
