Reviews - What do customers think about Richard Scarry's Please and Thank You Book (Pictureback(R))?

To Save for Toddler to Pre-School Years  Feb 10, 2008
Since it's difficult to get children to sit and read often, this book is a bit difficult without "real-life" situations and examples, so whenever I take my child out, I always try my best to make sure that she hears me say "please" and "thank-you" so she will learn those niceties as well as other cultural assistance that will make her a young lady throughout life even if life often doesn't accommodate. This book will be put up until she is ready for the harder concepts of visualization, until she can put reality together with the written word, but it is a WINNER!!!
 
Richard Scarry's Please and Thank-You Book  Jan 28, 2008
This book represents a childhood favorite of both my children. It is no longer available in book stores, so I was delighted to find used copies available so that I can buy it for my new grandson. So far I have been telling him the stories just from memory, but the original is priceless. We especially adore the "Pig Will, Pig Won't" story which teaches kids to have a positive attitude. The Pig Won't character is a wonderful example of what NOT to be, and is also great fun to imitate while reading the story.

Who will buy this book? "I will," says Pig Will.

"I won't," says Pig Won't.

So Pig Won't will miss all the fun.
 
A classic in our family!  Jan 13, 2008
All four of my children had this book read to them many, many times when they were young, and I can attest to the fact that it all sunk in! In fact, now in their 20's, they still quote this book. I'm purchasing another today, for my second grandchild. I'm so glad it's still available! Great book! It gives really cute, friendly examples of the benefits of manners and helping others.

Richard Scarry's Please and Thank You Book (Pictureback(R))
I originally bought this book for my son and now I'm buying it for my grand son. It is an excellent book, kids love it and it teaches good values. All the Richard Scarry books are excellent! They hold the child's attention and they learn without realizing it. I always enjoyed them as well, they are fun for the adult to read to their children.
 
An outstanding book on manners for children  May 13, 2007
Our daughters had this book when they were children in the late 70's and it was always one of their favorites; they still talk about it now (late 20's and early 30's). We have just bought a new copy for our recently born grand-daughter and are sure she will love it just as much. Many of our friends are familiar with this book, especially all the 'Pests' so brilliantly portrayed.
