* Individual store prices may vary.
With our demanding modern schedules, it's all too easy to overlook introducing important social skills to our children. Learning basic etiquette and manners early, especially during childhood, can shape a child's character and greatly impact his or her life for the better.
The EW Foundation's (EWF) vision is to teach, inspire, and motivate children to perform spontaneous acts of kindness and consideration. The benefits they receive from simple, good behavior will be both tangible and intangible. Our belief is that children can "do well by doing good deeds."
The topics covered in this book are part of the EW Foundation's award-winning KAMP(R) curriculum, a 2015 and 2016 Promising Practices national award winner by Washington, DC-based Character.org.
Sip Tea with Mad Hatter makes learning afternoon tea manners fun, meaningful, and most important, memorable. Any adult or child who reads this book will delight in the clever illustrations and correlations of Alice in Wonderland's characters to the manners advice. Phrases like "Be as cool as a Cheshire cat," "Don't be a mean Red Queen," and "My teacup runneth over with gratitude" are easy-to-grasp concepts for children.
