May I Please Have a Cookie? (Scholastic Readers, Level 1)

In this Level 1 Scholastic Reader, Alfie learns that the best way to get a delicious cookie is to say please!

Alfie loves his mommy's cookies, and he wants one more than anything! But grabbing for one, fishing for one, and dressing up as a cookie inspector don't seem to work. His mommy says there is a better way. What is it?

Beginning readers will learn proper manners with Alfie as his mommy teaches him to say the magic words.

    This review is from: May I Please Have a Cookie? (Scholastic Readers, Level 1) (Paperback)
    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!

    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.

    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.

    A brief summary of the book: Alfie loves cookies and wants one of the cookies Mommy just baked. Using several “creative” methods, Alfie tries unsuccessfully to get a the cookies. Then, with Mommy’s help, he learns the best (easiest?) way of all to get to the cookies is to say “Please”).

    Cute, colorful pictures, simple wording, easy concept to understand (even for a 3 and a half year old.
