The National Bestseller, Featuring a Brand-New Introduction by Karen SantorumAs a mother, Karen Santorum grew frustrated by her inability to find a book of manners that instructed through engaging stories and poems rather than by dull lists of dos and don’ts.

She set out to solve the problem. The result is this wonderfully rich and instructive anthology. A national bestseller, Everyday Graces has become a beloved feature in homes, schools, churches, and libraries across America. It speaks to the fact that manners are seldom discussed anymoreand are practiced even less.

Good manners are a prerequisite for the growth of moral character; they are the habits of conduct by which we express in the most ordinary circumstances our fundamental respect for others, whether parents, friends, colleagues, or strangers. Under such headings as Honor Your Mother and Father, Please, Thank You, and Other Kind Words, Be Considerate at the Table, Good Sportsmanship, and Respecting Our Country, Everyday Graces gathers stories and poems that will develop and enrich the moral imagination.
