Los Angeles Book Festival Award
Max Mistake (Mr. Mistake) is visiting his cousin, Missy Mistake. They will be going to a fancy restaurant and Max is aware he does not know the “rules of the table” - which is like knowing the rules to any game – and he certainly doesn’t want to look like a farm animal while eating! Mannie shows Max the correct way to eat and act while dining with others. Knowing these rules helps Max “win the game” when it comes to table manners!
What People Say
Mr. Mistake can help children navigate what good manners look like when going out to eat. This book can help us all remember to be kind towards each other, as well as expectations such as holding the door for someone or thinking of others around us. This story can open up important conversations about learning how to ‘be’ with others. —Barbara Simmons, Executive Director Emeritus, The Peace Center, Langhorne, PA
My 10-year-old grandson and I enjoyed this book together. He thought it would help him feel more confident when going out to eat and meeting people. Questions and engaging illustrations coupled with pleasant humor make this a fun and informative book! — Helen VanSise, Director, Kids Day Out Preschool, Mount Pocono, PA
