Proper Penguin

With our toys, games and resources we hope to have helped you find a fun way to bring manners to your child at home or at school.

For Parents: Buy the Book

The Proper Penguin – The Story of B Polite was developed to help children and their parents to see civility in action.

B Polite is a penguin that lives at the South Pole.  The penguins that live there get their name from the pole-lights or the “Polite’s.”B is a nick name for Bentley.  The story is a day in the life of B Polite, a penguin that lives in a cold place that is warm and friendly due to a kind way of life.  It is a sweet story of the benefits of building a foundation of manners early in life. The story is written so children may connect with B Polite and see that kind actions are a desirable way to a happy life.

The “buy the book” button will give you several options to purchase the book, book and penguin plush or the deluxe kit with all that and more.

Who Knew Learning Manners Could be so much FUN!

B Polite Goes to School

The Journey of Civility is so important, now more than ever it seems. A study conducted by Harvard University, Stanford and the Carnegie Research Institute show that a person’s success in business today is attributed:
1) 85% to social skills…(what we will call polish) and
2) 15% to technical knowledge.

So how much polish are we learning on our way to being successful? How are we equipping the leaders of tomorrow with the understanding of polish and civility? The Charleston School of Protocol is on a major mission to help people “Choose Civility” and The Proper Penguin book is an integral part to help children at a young age begin their journey.

The Proper Penguin has a fully developed curriculum designed to engage school children in positive actions and attitudes!  So, why wait?  Bring B to your school today!
