Learning about etiquette can be fun, especially with the help of Barney and his friend Miss Vera Goode's "Book of Manners for Children." This 48-minute, never-televised program shows young children how to cooperate, share, use the magic words "please and thank you," and generally exemplify good manners. Barney and his five young friends experience the topsy-turvy tea from Alice in Wonderland firsthand, then practice their manners and get dressed up for a celebratory party at Vera Goode's mansion. Song and dance abounds as Barney and his crew discovers that practicing good manners can be unexpectedly fun. Barney features a somewhat improved singing voice in this production thanks to voicing by Dean Wendt and is joined by Vera Goode (voiced by Gretta Muller) in several musical duets. (Ages 1-6) --Tami Horiuchi
