Time for Manners was formed to gain a wider distribution for a unique and successful educational program of the same name. For more than 10 years, Holly Beth Moncher (a working mom herself with 3 grown boys) has been teaching children the basics of good manners and kind behavior toward others. Her unusual method combines entertainment with education – always a necessity for a very young audience. With puppets, songs, stories, and humor, Time for Manners makes learning fun! Now this award-winning program is being issued on a series of DVDs, accompanied by toys that also function as learning aids.
