Penguin learns to say please in different situations throughout this sturdy board book. With simple text and vibrant photos, this is an excellent way to start teaching manners.
Three cheers for any book that teaches children to say ‘please’ and ‘thank you.’ In bold, simple illustrations little penguin learns to say please as he moves through his morning routine. Mother penguin practically glows with pleasure as little penguin practices saying ‘please.’
Pretty cute and a fast easy read teaching the simple lesson of saying “Please.” I thought it was well done, but not one we’re drawn to reading over and over as a family.
You never can have enough books teaching good manners! I love that this one easily teaches “please,” and the end has a funny twist, but I do wish they would have included “thank you” at the end of the story. :)
