How (and Why) to Write Thank You Notes Writing Guide for Kids - Workbook


Sadly, the traditional forms of proper etiquette and good manners are often lost in the modern world.  Obsessed with cell phones, apps, email, etc., we often forget the dignity and decorum signified by something as simple as a thank-you note. 


Years ago, writing thank-you notes was a rite of passage.  Today, many gift-givers are lucky to hear even a mumbled "thanks."


So why not let thank-you notes go the way of the dinosaur and simply disappear?

  1. Writing thank-you notes teaches children to show appreciation and respect.

  2. Crafting a thank-you note teaches children how to be better writers.

  3. Learning the correct way to express appreciation fosters good communication and networking skills.

  4. Children who have learned to write thank-you notes go on to easily and quickly write job interview thank-you notes, letters of inquiry, office memos, and more as adults.

  5. Writing thank-you notes deepens the relationships between givers and recipients.

  6. Learning and displaying proper manners and etiquette are crucial to everyone's social skills.


Our 13-page workbook explains everything a child (or parent) needs to know about writing thank-you notes.  Numerous scenarios and examples are given, and explained in a way that children as young as seven or eight can understand.  Children are given five gift scenarios and asked to craft their own responses (a "cheat sheet" with tips on what their letters should include is located on the last page of the booklet).

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
