I bought Please, Mr. Panda by Steve Antony at my school’s book fair last year. It definitely reminds me a lot of Jon Klassen’s hat books, which are some of my favorites.
Mr. Panda has a box of delicious donuts to give away, but he can’t seem to find the right animal to share his donuts with. He is waiting to hear some “magic words” and when he finally does, you’ll love his response.
This is a fun story that could be used to talk about manners and saying please and thank you – or you can enjoy it just for fun.
It was the kind of night when everyone is tired and grumpy at our house last night so this short and sweet read was perfect.
