I am happy to be reviewing Play It Smart! The Game Plan for a Happy & Confident Child. by Suzanne M Wind.  I found this to be a very modern version of Miss Manners guide. I think this art of teaching our children these fundamentals has been forgotten but I am happy to see this book bringing them to light again.  Social Skills, Mealtime Manners, the Art of Conversation, Restaurant Behavior and Technology Talk are the main focus points of the book.  I like how this book teaches these life skills through games, points or ticket earning and fun!  Our little girls will gain a lot of confidence and good character from these lessons and I am happy to have this guide to help teach them these very important life skills. No wonder the Author and this book have won so many awards! It is just what this generation needs!
