Benjamin Bear enjoys frolicking in the woods with his animal friends, but sometimes his lack of manners causes problems in his play. Benjamin Bear Says Please is the third in a cute series meant to teach manners to toddlers.

Benjamin just can't seem to remember to say please as he jumps on a friend's sled or shares their snack. With reinforcement from his pals, however, Benjamin is reminded to request permission, and his buddies forgive him in the end.

Author Juliet David has written mostly Bible-based children's books until now; her Benjamin Bear books instill morals without being preachy. Steve Smallman's winter illustrations are sweet and seem to speak to Benjamin Bear's bouncy personality. This is a great little bedtime story to enjoy this winter!
