When my first book came out in 2004, the first thing someone said to me was,"When does the second book come out?" Well...it's finally here!! The title is "Be Kind Be Sweet Be Nice to Everyone You Meet". My middle daughter Mary Moore and I created it this summer. We had talked about how we were not hearing "please" and "thank you" from children we were coming in contact with and decided to do something about that. So we made a manners book along with counting. One is to count the kind words. So for instance one kind word is "please". Two kind words are "thank you" and so on up to twelve kind words. Then each page has a rhyme, a thought and a scripture to back up the kindness. Here is a sample page. It is 8 kind words. The page reads "When you make a little mess at your home or as a guest, clean up after yourself, that will be the best."
