Mary Wrightly, So Politely by Shirin Yim BridgesMary Wrightly is the best-behaved little girl around. She always politely says please and thank you and even I'm sorry when something isn't her fault. But when a shopper comes between Mary and the blue elephant toy she wants to buy for her beloved baby brother, will Mary just let the woman walk away with it? Speak up, Mary! Monescillo's charming illustrations capture the spirit of this gentle look at how asserting oneself is not rude, and even occasionally completely necessary.
starred review Understated and sunny itself, this picture book subtly prescribes behavior for situations dire and everyday. So, um, well, will you give it a read...please?
starred review Mary, with her wavy blond hair and rosy pink cheeks, is an endearing character who learns when to speak up for herself.
Sometimes you just have to tell people what you want. And what this smart, affecting and original story wants is some well-deserved attention.
This would be a fine picture book for a young girl whose good manners could use tweaking.
This gently paced tale shows children there's room for both courtesy and confidence. Jennifer M. Brown, children's editor,
starred review [Mary] is endearing in her shy sweetness.
