Table Time Review by Jennifer Pepito

Time for Manners
9750 Crawford Ave.
Skokie, IL 60076

Table Time is a new DVD about manners by the innovative creators of Time For Manners and Merlin Manners talking toy. The DVD features professional looking puppets who teach how to set the table, use a napkin properly and eat without grossing out your table mates. I am always thankful for opportunities to encourage my children to have pleasant behavior for the glory of God, and my children really got a kick out of the puppets and songs on this fun and interesting DVD.

The series was conceived by Holly Beth Moncher who has taught manners for ten years and she certainly put her creativity and expertise to good use when creating these wonderful teaching tools. She also uses a great deal of positive reinforcement in encouraging the puppet's efforts, hopefully we will use the same positive attitude to encourage our own little munchkins as they learn with this easily implemented manners lesson.
