Open the flaps for a fun and friendly way to learn good manners! From Caldecott Honoree Rachel Isadora and her innovative co-author, Robie Rogge.

A magical book about the very powerful and essential magic words! The children in this story say hello to a unicorn, share pizza with a gorilla, apologize to an ostrich ballerina, welcome a bear at the door, and wave goodbye to a friend in a hot air balloon. Each picture opens to a lift-the-flap surprise. Manners have never been such fun!

Meanwhile, readers learn "hello," "please," "thank you," "excuse me," "welcome," "I like to share," "Can I help?" and "goodbye."

Caldecott Honor Award winner Rachel Isadora's charming illustrations will delight and entertain children as they learn some of the most important words in the English language.
