Say Excuse Me!
By John Townsend (Author), Carolyn Scrace (Illustrator)
‘HB tries to leave the table,
It’s such a squash and squeeze.
Without a fuss, the right words are
“Will you Excuse Me, please?”’
This highly enjoyable and charmingly-illustrated early learning book teaches children about the importance of politeness and saying “excuse me.” The book features good role models, the Scribble Monsters, and shows their good behavior being rewarded, both of which are key for showing children why it pays to practice good manners, improving their own behavior.
