Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Three very short tales are used as examples of when to say "please." Good manners are part of what makes life pleasant, and asking for help in a pleasant way shows our respect. Boldfaced discussion questions can help reinforce this understanding with young listeners and readers. Part of the "Courteous Kids" series. 2001, Gareth Stevens Publishing, $14.95. Ages 3 to 8. Reviewer: C. Leonard-Schmidling SOURCE: Parent Council, September 2001 (Vol. 9, No. 1)
Children's Literature
This short book is designed to teach young children how to politely request something. Ben and Ali are playing ball in the backyard. When the ball is accidentally bounced into the neighbors yard Ali asks if he could "please" have it back. The neighbor gladly tosses the ball over the shrubs. When the ball is kicked into the neighbors yard a second time, Ben demands "give me the ball." This time the neighbor states that he will not return the ball. Readers are asked to think about how both Ben and the neighbor must feel at this point. Ben asks for his ball again, but this time he adds the word "please." The neighbor then hands the ball back. The book concludes with a small summary, which restates some of the key points. It is part of the "Courteous Kids" series. 2001 (orig. 1999), Gareth Stevens, . Ages 3 up. Reviewer: Denise Daley
