"Please" takes the stage in this kind reminder to use that ever important word. As the narrator relates its uses, the little mice act as a conscience, encouraging the boys and girls to do the right thing. Even while carrying signs, they get up to some silly antics, adding a lighthearted tone rather than one of someone preaching. For this reason, children will find this enjoyable and may learn the appropriate way to get that much desired cookie from the jar.

Perfect book for teaching manners to young children. Especially liked the inclusion of the disclaimer that even if you ask politely, sometimes the answer will still be no! (Often a hard lesson to teach/learn!)

This book from Mo Willems hopes to teach children about saying please when they want something. The book is cute but it does not live up to Willems other work. This would be a good read aloud with kids to help start a conversation about manners.
