Which Fork's First
Enter the magical world of a little boy with a big imagination in Prince A. Sanders’s delightful debut, Which Fork’s First? From the very first page of this unique children’s book, kids will learn proper table manners while embarking on a whimsical romp through the Big Apple! The first in the Extraordinarily Ordinary Life of Prince series, Which Fork’s First? introduces six-year-old Prince, a smart and curious little boy who lives with his mother, father, and brother in New York City. Along with his hamster and constant companion, Popcorn, Prince embarks on a series of adventures that ultimately teaches him some of life’s more puzzling lessons. It is Prince’s birthday weekend, and his family has surprised him with the best gift of all: tickets to a Broadway show and a fancy, grown-up dinner at the New York Hotel. Prince is over the moon, but quickly learns that there is a catch. In order to dine at such an upscale eatery, Prince must learn proper table etiquette—and fast! Accompanied by engaging illustrations that will simultaneously spark children’s imaginations while sending them into fits of giggles, Which Fork’s First? follows Prince’s often hilarious road toward politeness.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! Prince is a fun and relatable character that educates young readers on proper etiquette. The illustrations are very engaging and highlight the story well. I would definitely recommend this book to others!!

This is a great book to read to your young children or grandchildren — fun story while teaching lessons on table etiquette. It will also be good for your young advanced readers learning to read. Book has engaging, colorful and fun illustrations that complement the story well. I love the fact that the “star” of the book is an African-American boy — not many books out there for young black children that show them as the center character. Cannot wait for more of this series to come out!!!

I have to say, this book is so great for Kids. It’s about a lesson about etiquette which kids and even adults have neglected nowadays. What a great way to instill proper etiquette to kids when they’re young. The pictures are vibrant, Prince is vibrant, and certainly takes us on a journey into this little boys life on how it should be, how we should be, and what it means. Such a great lesson, and I can’t wait to all my nieces and nephews get a copy! 5 Stars hands down!

This book is awesome! I used to work for 2 catering companies while in college and I always wondered what would be an easy way to train the servers in place setting. This helped me remember which eating utensil goes where and it also helped me more effectively teach my 8yr old and 4yr old daughters how to properly set a table. We are still working on the etiquette part of that for my 4yr old and my 3month old son isn’t quite there yet either. Thank You so much Mr. Prince for helping a mother like myself who is often times on the go to be able to teach my children etiquette and proper table setting on a relatable level and in a simple way. I can’t wait for your other books to come out! Like greatly appreciate this gift you gave to the world!

This is an amazing book, which teaches children about proper table manners, that is fun and entertaining. I can’t wait to get the next installment of the series. Great work Prince on touching on a topic that is of vital importance but many times overlooked in modern times.
