Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Krisan Murphy
"Yes, please!" is the lovely response to a young girl who invites her animal friends on a picnic. A sunny day and good manners make the joyful outing a success. The cat, wearing a polka-dotted skirt, responds with an enthusiastic "Yes, please!" when offered a cupcake. Likewise, the pig-tailed girl answers politely when asked to play. This preschool primer on manners uses the friendship of a young girl, a porcupine, a rabbit, and a cat to demonstrate how to respond to a question. A whimsical quilt splashes the pages with color. Delightful ducks, bees, and butterflies join in the outing of the friends. Readers, too, will want to join in the fun of the smiling companions and mimic their manners. Back at home the well-mannered friends enjoy a peaceful nap after a long day of play. The simple pictures are ideal for three year olds, and the clear, open text would be appropriate for the earliest readers. Children, parents, and teachers will want to read the complement book, "I Can Say Thank You" by the same author illustrator. Reviewer: Krisan Murphy
Kirkus Reviews

An Australian import tackles manners for the very young.

A little girl takes her stuffed cat and rabbit, along with her pet hedgehog, on an idyllic picnic. Each double-page spread sets up a statement or question ("Would you like to hold my hand?") that advances the day's events with an accompanied, expected answer ("Yes, please!"). Brief phrases in direct, appropriate language serve each natural page turn. Though the "Yes, please!" response never changes, the toys and youngster take turns directing and accepting requests. A soft sweetness—there's no hint of saccharine—nurtures the child's maturing independence as she organizes the festivities with absolutely no adult involvement (or any conflict to be seen). Respectful conversations between the preschooler and her friends appear fresh and unforced. The playthings' full-force involvement sets the creative stage; her dressed pals rifle through the basket, nibble on sandwiches and dip their toes in the water. Minimal backgrounds and pastel borders keep the focus on the action at hand. Slight alterations to facial expressions highlight a quiet reflection. A companion piece, I Can Say Thank You, follows a similar route as the friends explore their surroundings.

A wholesome, pleasant demonstration of politeness for toddlers just discovering the joys of imaginative play. (Picture book. 1-3)
