When poor manners are present, Forkman will be there to save the day! Join Kathryn and William as they learn how to load the dishwasher properly and avoid inappropriate distractions at the table with the help of all their utensil friends. This second book in the Adventures of Forkman series is a great introduction to mealtime etiquette for readers of all ages.
I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
Forkman is a fork who can talk! He teaches Kathryn and William how to help out by loading the dishwasher. He also teaches them good table manners. I’m sure kids will get a kick out of it when their dad’s phone goes off, and Forkman says that having a phone at the dinner table is a no no.
The Adventures of Forkman: What’s That Noise? is a fun book for children to read or for parents to read to them. It also has necessary lessons in etiquette that are easily learned from Forkman. The illustrations are bright and colorful and will keep the attention of young children.
I wasn’t sure if I was going to like a book with a silly character made out of a fork, but it works! I definitely recommend this book and look forward to sharing it with my grandchildren. Adults might even learn a thing or two!
About the Authors
Tiffany Caldwell: I have worked with children for over thirteen years and every year basic manners become less evident. When I was growing up, my sisters and I took etiquette classes during the summer while we visited our grandparents. Etiquette was always a big part of our upbringing. When we would have our family dinners, my dad, W.R. MacKenzie, would make our utensils come to life as we were eating. Forkman became a part of our dinner routine! I am a mother of three great kids and military wife to my hero. A few years ago, I told my dad we needed to start writing our story. We are so excited to share Forkman with the world!
W.R. MacKenzie: I spent thirty-nine years in the bakery business. After I retired and my four children were grown, I felt it was time to share the importance of the family meal with the world. The Adventures of Forkman teaches children how to properly conduct themselves at the table. Our books are filled with characters all children can relate with and I believe Forkman and his crew will help children of all ages learn manners and table etiquette.
