Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece


The founder of a successful children’s clothing line, author of an influential parenting blog, and mother of five children, Marie-Chantal of Greece is constantly asked how she manages to do it all. So many of these queries – about proper etiquette for children in our fast paced, technology-centered world – led her to recognize the need for a modern handbook on children’s manners.

Manners Begin at Breakfast addresses rules of etiquette, including basic table manners, social media, fashion dos and don’ts, and party conversation. Covering children from infants to teens, it t is an essential guide for all parents keen to raise polite, well-rounded children, equipped to thrive in society and develop into confident, successful adults. Illustrated with charming, specially commissioned watercolors, featuring a foreword by designer Tory Burch and an introduction by leading pediatrician Dr. Perri Klass, and written in a lively, conversational style, it is certain to become a perennial and must-have parental resource.
