I Say Please and Thank You: Lift-the-Flap Manners

Holiday House. Oct. 2021. 28p. Tr $17.99. ISBN 9780823449194.
PreS-Gr 1–Utterly adorable, delicate pen, ink, and watercolor illustrations adorn this lift-the-flap book. Characters include a plethora of zoo animals as well as some imaginary animals, such as a rainbow unicorn and a mermaid. Each animal interacts with a person (there is wide representation throughout the book). Manners are presented with a scenario and when the flap is lifted an appropriate response is shown. Children will love reading this book over and over, to find the fish in a bib wearing a party hat, an ostrich in ballet shoes, and a well-dressed panda and piglet eating an ice cream cone on a bench.
VERDICT A delightful purchase for all libraries where little ones are learning the value of courtesy and respect for others.
