Book review: Give Please A Chance by Bill O'Reilly and James Patterson

   Little Princess got this book for Christmas from her Great Great Aunt R.  It is so cute, and both kids love it.  It is a good lesson book on saying please, without appearing as a lesson book.  It is easy to read, with wonderful, full-page illustrations by different illustrators.  That actually brought on a discussion about types of drawings, media, paints, etc, and research on Handsome Boy's favorites.  Princess likes to say "Sure you can" on almost every page, and it has a lot of the simple words she's working on for school.  I also like how the kids in the pictures are different ages, and in a lot of common situations.  It's about 35-40 pages, but only one line on one side, and a picture and "Please" on the other.
   I don't know what ages this is geared toward, but I think anything in elementary or lower would be appropriate.  I'm grateful we got this book as a gift.  It's already been requested for reading a dozen times in a week.  Check it out from your local library if they have it, and buy it if you like it for keeps.
Joyfully yours,
