Everyone forgets their manners sometimes.

P is for Please: A Bestiary of Manners offers twenty-six clever, silly, beautifully illustrated reminders about kindness, respect, and the all-important “please.”

Celebrated author and illustrator Ali Bahrampour (Otto: The Story of a Mirror) teams with recovering elementary school teacher Lisa Tharpe to create this rollicking alliterative romp through the ABCs of minding one’s Ps and Qs.

As Mira Mongoose reminds us, manners are mighty. Dancing through the antics of Annie Anteater, Zolinda Zorilla, and all the animals in between, young readers find that learning to mind their Ps and Qs has never been more fun.
