My Review
The Adventures of Forkman: What's That Noise is the second book in the Forkman series, and this one shows kids how to clean up after themselves at the dinner table and load the dishwasher. It also teaches kids about good manners at the dinner table, like saying 'Excuse me' and putting away their phones/electronic devices. It's a cute, simple book with fun illustrations that kids will find themselves drawn to. It teaches kids in an easy to understand way about proper table manners/etiquette, and how to properly load a dishwasher (with the help of a parent for some things, of course).
I found this to be a lovely book, and although I haven't read the first one yet, I can see this series being added to my bookshelf as a helpful guide (and a fun read) for my younger son.
4 stars!

 Meet 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.
