  1. Two birds with one stone… I found this to be a very fast read and entertaining for my daughter. I was surprised at how much she liked this story. I wasn’t expecting her to learn manners from this book though. While the story is really basic, all I have to say is “How would Alfie ask for that?” if she’s being a little too demanding. She immediately says “May I please have a ______?” She often had me read it to her 5-6 times per night. This is one of the first books she learned to read on her own.

  2. Alfie is a hit! This is a fantastic book! We just received May I Please Have A Cookie a few days ago and we’ve already read it so many times that we’ve practically got it memorized! The story teaches a valuable lesson and the illustrations are terrific. My six-year-old laughs every time he sees the picture where Alfie’s pretend moustache falls off!

  3. Very simple and sweet lesson My almost 4 year old son loves this book! We read it every day; sometimes 2, 3, or 4 times. At first he didn’t understand the “lesson”. But, after a few times reading it, he did grasp the concept of saying “please”. He has told me, several times, that this is his favorite book.
