If you have, know or are a little girl at heart, this book is a must. I bought it for my daughter when I went to LA earlier this year and we stopped at Kitson after going to a Chelsea Lately show. That was quite an experience! I went with my stepmother and stepsister, and we had a blast, but Chelsea's show was crazy! That's another story.
Back to the book, my daughter loves Madeline, and what better way to teach manners, and remind myself as we all need to do every once in a while, what it means to be a polite person.
