In My Little Fox Says Please by David Blaze, discover how my little fox learns the importance of saying ‘Please’ in everyday situations. My little fox is taught that it is always better to be well mannered and considerate of others than to stamp and shout to get what you want. This enchanting story uses easy to follow examples, such as bath time, play time, and eating out, that teach your child how to interact with their family, friends and other children at home, at school and in social settings. The subliminal message throughout this book will help children become better communicators and make any request polite by saying ‘Please’. Just like my little fox, your child will discover that saying 'Please' gets the best results.
An excellent concept for a pre-school book, which is well written with simple but effective language.

Every parent has been the victim of a temper tantrum from their child, and this book could be referred to as a method to teach social skills, ready for when the child starts school or playgroup. A great story that children can read along with and memorize. A perfect gift idea for a child and a must for every nursery school library as children learn how to interact with others and discover that sharing and manners are so important.
