    Even Fleas Say Please by Lindsay Meleshko is very enchanting. The situations created by the author within the pages are funny and educational – a real treat to read. This is a book that I will read to my little one when she has to start learning about the importance of having good manners. It feels that manners and politeness take a backseat nowadays, but this story shows how important it is to say ‘please’ and ‘thank you.’ I hope more parents read this story to their children. The illustrations by Robin DeWitt and Patricia DeWitt-Grush just take this sweet book to the next level of enjoyment. Every scenario was depicted with a touch of humor, and It is simply a must to look at every single illustration and see the story they tell on their own.
