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.     

       BookSneeze® has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.

  1. Jellyfish, You hit the nail precisely when you said that the book has thing mothers and grandmothers want their young ladies to know. Politeness never goes out of style. When the need arises, you either have the necessary manners or you won't know how to respond appropriately for a young lady. Your review reflected your keen literary ability.
