Book Review/Giveaway: Alex and Tony Learn To Be Gentlemen. Ends March 17th

Alex and Tony Learn To Be Gentlemen by Antonee Boykin and Illustrated by Dia Reddo

About the Book: Alex and Tony are observant seven-year-old twin brothers who admire their parents and are constantly learning from them both. One morning during breakfast when Tony decides to ask their dad why he always gets a chair for their mom to sit in, he and Alex both learn a valuable lesson about what it means to be a gentleman. It isn’t until later that day at school when the boys are able to actually put dad’s lesson to use, and experience what it feels like to be gentlemen.

My Review: This book is a great start for young children to have the knowledge on how to behave among other people. It teaches boys how to conduct themselves as gentlemen. After Alex and Tony learned a valuable lesson about what it means to be a gentleman, they decided to put the lesson to use when Crystal tripped over her book bag in class. They rushed to her side to help her while the other kids in the class burst out laughing.

A well written book by the author and great illustrations by Dia Reddo which help tell the story and bring the book to life with its water-like crayon colors. I highly recommend this book for parents to read to their children and for classroom teaching.

Pages: 32

  1. We have two sons and one is named Alex! Manners and etiquette are something we stress are
    very important in life. I like the illustrations on the cover of this book and inside. This book would
    be a great family reading time book!
    Many thanks, Cindi

  4. My grandson gets compliments on his behavior in school – it’s at home with his sisters where he needs to remember to practice good manners.

  5. I like that this book shows kids learning and putting kindness (isn’t that most of being a gentleman?) to use.

  6. My 5 year old son could greatly benefit from this book. My husband works a lot, so my son doesn’t get to see “gentlemenly” things very often.

  8. My husband and I are definitely wanting to start early with training my son to be a gentleman and have good manners. I like that it shows the children learning from their parents before they face an experience. Sounds like a great teaching book.

  9. I LOVE the message in this book! There is a little boy at my children’s school who always holds the door for us and lets us go through first and I always think he’s such a little gentleman. I’d love to teach my son to be the same way and reading a book about it would be great for him! 🙂
