I was given this book for an honest review.

This book was awesome! I loved the simple but effective language and easy to understand moral. Both of my toddlers were able to tell me what the "magic words" were right off the bat, and understood the boy's chosen words did not fit into the guidelines for good manners. I myself, as well as my kids, was drawn to the colorful pictures and felt they were bright without being overpowering. I really enjoyed reading this with my children and plan on reading this book many more times to come!

I read this to my five year old and he absolutely loved it.  Both of us loved the illustrations and the meaning behind the book.  He forgets to say please and thank you a lot, so this was a great reminder for him.  We were very entertained and hope to read more books that my son will enjoy as much as he enjoyed this one.
