Emily Post's The Guide to Good Manners for Kids by Peggy Post and Cindy Post Senning (the coauthors are Emily Post's great-granddaughter-in-law and great-granddaughter) offers guidance even adults will appreciate, with age-old advice on attending weddings to contemporary etiquette on cell phone usage. The authors also suggest wording for invitations to a bar mitzvah and bat mitzvah, and explain events such as confirmation and quinceanera (""a Latino girl's fifteenth birthday"") and offer ideas for small get-togethers, such as a picnic or slumber party. Pen-and-inks by Steve Bjokman liven up the proceedings. .
