Continuing the series, author Kelly Chapman maintains a consistent format with the first book. During a baseball game, Luke gets knocked out cold. His slumber sparks another dream of he and his buddies attending Warrior Prince Academy with Sir Britmore. As the boys journey through different challenges within their royal drills, they discover four levels of manners and how each contributes to being a good knight.
- Power Words: Phrases like please, thank you, I'm sorry, excuse me, your welcome, yes, ma'am and yes, sir
- Code of Honor: This includes -- first and foremost -- loving God and loving others. Knights exhibit this, for example, by making eye contact, being respectful, taking turns, sharing and speaking truthfully.
- Table Manners: The knights-in-training learned about appropriate behavior at dinner and how to properly set the table and use the utensils provided.
- Sportsmanship: It's not all about winning the game! Wise knights follow the coach's directions, play fair, encourage teammates and treat their opponents with respect.
What I Dislike: Nothing, really. But I do wonder how many families still set the table with multiple forks. Aside from weddings, I don't know when my kids would need that information or encounter that situation.
Overall Rating: Very Good.
Age Appeal: 3-8
