As a companion book to the popular Time to Pee!, Mo Willems has created a book on manners in his own signature style. Groups of ebullient mice narrate this humorous text as young children try in vain to get what they want, learning along the way that it is helpful to say "Please," "Thank you," "Excuse me," and "I'm sorry." Oh, and you have to mean it, too.

"Please" takes the stage in this kind reminder to use that ever important word. As the narrator relates its uses, the little mice act as a conscience, encouraging the boys and girls to do the right thing. Even while carrying signs, they get up to some silly antics, adding a lighthearted tone rather than one of someone preaching. For this reason, children will find this enjoyable and may learn the appropriate way to get that much desired cookie from the jar.

This book from Mo Willems hopes to teach children about saying please when they want something. The book is cute but it does not live up to Willems other work. This would be a good read aloud with kids to help start a conversation about manners.
