I appreciate the range of art from the different illustrators that were used to create this book, however it is very didactic. It does feel a need if you are looking for manners books for very young children.

Who said manners are old fashioned? This is a great book that gets the message across in a variety of scenarios, that saying please is easy and important in everyday life and special occasions. Multiple artists contributed to each color page depicting a situation where young people need help or are asking for something. We loved it!
