Learn how Madama became a renowned magical milliner, about friendship, the cost of cruelty, and why manners and ethics are so important to her.  

Madama comes to us from another time to share about universal human values.  She wants to start a dialog about why it's important to treat people with kindness, respect, gratitude and compassion.

The Garden Hat

When she tips her head, it waters the flowers!

In the Manner for All Seasons Series, she shares engaging stories teaching emotional intelligence and social skills, a necessary balance to our burgeoning technological focus.

"To look at Madama you would never know what a hard life she had as a girl with her fancy hats and dresses, but Madama is a tough bird to those who aren't nice to others.  Mean kids are a pet peeve of hers and that's why she named me Peeves.  She is a friend worth having and I'd like to tell you why!"
