Title: The Please and Thank You Book

A funny first book of manners, in rollicking rhyme!

Modeling clay ground into the mat.

This collection of short, snappy poems about grabby gorillas, wild cats, sloppy pigs, sharing bears, and thoughtful elephants will have kids in stitches as they’re reminded how—and how not—to behave!
