Thank you Mr Panda is the third book in the Mr Panda series about good manners, which began with the picture book Please Mr Panda. In this story, Mr Panda is happy to help his friends prepare for a special surprise - IF they remember to say thank you! This is a great book, boldly illustrated with simple text. Apart from encouraging young children to say 'thank you', it can also be used in the classroom in other ways - to encourage discussion, prediction and reasoning about what makes good presents and why, for example. It also allows children the opportunity to explore the language of size and comparison. They could have great fun remembering the order of presents, putting the presents in order by size, and even switching presents around to ensure the best fit. A playful book encouraging children to think about what other people/friends might need or like, teaching them about awareness, their needs and their differences. Picture book / Ages 3+ / Reviewed by Louise Gahan, teacher.
