In Please Mr. Panda by Steve Antony, Mr. Panda has some colorful (and no doubt delicious) doughnuts to give away. “Would you like a doughnut?” he asks the penguin. “Give me the pink one,” says the penguin. “No, you cannot have a doughnut. I have changed by mind.” Mr. Panda offers, and then takes back the offer of, doughnuts to the skunk, the ostrich, and the whale. But when the lemur sweetly asks “May I have a doughnut? Please, Mr. Panda?” Mr. Panda gives him ALL the doughnuts. He was just waiting for that magic word! Please! To the polite lemur go the doughnut spoils! If your little one is a fan of animals, or doughnuts (and if you’re a fan of dry humour), or if anyone needs a refresher on manners, be sure to check this story out soon.
