I got this for my Grandson a week ago and he already knows it by heart. My daughter said it has helped him in preschool and at home getting the correct response to his requests. I would recommend this book to every parent and grand parent who wants their child to grow up with respect for himself and others
I may be old fashioned but there is nothing like being around kids ( and adults) that are polite and use their manners without being reminded. It seems like it's becoming a lost art these days and no one seems to care to instil the importance of kind, caring words as much any more. Back in the day when I was a practising elementary school teacher I would get kids in my classroom in September who were never taught how to say , " Good morning Mrs., excuse me, may I?, please and thank you." These were not words in their vocabulary, words that express kindness and consideration to their fellow classmates or even to the adults in the building. I am not blaming the kids because those words and ideas are taught in their homes and they should bring them along with them to school and other places they go away from home. I worked on manners in my classroom from the beginning of the school year until the very end of June. My students would leave knowing how important and full of respect those words were to all those around them. I highly endorse "Give Please a Chance" and I would suggest that every teacher read it very early on in September to their class and then move forward every day afterwards to put those words into action. Words are empty if not acted upon. Daily practice of those magical words can bring calm, peace and happiness to our world. Good for Bill O'Reilly and James Patterson for writing such a timely and needed book. The illustrations are truly magnificent each one a masterpiece in itself. There are 23 brilliant pieces of artwork with different artists contributing their talented work. What a joy to have that many collected in one book. The message is timeless and kids will love each scenario played out and wrapped up with the magical word....'please'. This would be a perfect gift to give to a new mom, on someone's birthday, at Christmas or any other special occasion that may arise in your family. Talking about when, why and the importance of that six letter word... is very pleasing indeed. Highly recommended.
