Review: 50 Things Every Young Lady Should Know by Kay West

      50 Thing Every Young Lady Should Know is a book all about how to respond to or do certain things at certain times, such as how to say thank you when someone gives you a gift that you already have, or how to use a formal place setting. Each chapter starts with a page or two about what to do, then it has a section for certain circumstances and what to do, what not to do, and why to do that certain thing, or why not to do it.

       This is a great book to use as a quick resource if you needed to know how to do something, but its not like a novel that you could just sit down and read through. I did enjoy this book, because it has some very useful information.

Topics covered in 50 Things Every Young Lady Should Know include:
--Making conversation with adults
--Accepting a gift you don't like
--Dressing appropriately
--Winning and losing graciously Writing a thank-you note
This latest book in the GentleManners series was written especially for girls ages 8 to 14, to teach them the basic skills every young lady should have and every young lady's mother and grandmother want her to master.
