Thank You, Mr. Panda by Steve Antony

Mr. Panda has gifts for all his friends. Lemur tags along as Mr. Panda hands them out and is quick to reminds the recipients that "it's the thought that counts." I hope Lemur remembers that when he opens his gift from Mr. Panda.

Thoughts: Another Mr. Panda book--love, love, love! Mr. Panda could be my spirit animal--cute and cuddly but curiously misanthropic (at least when it suits him). He and Lemur are the only two black and white animals in this book unlike the first two Mr. Panda books (Please, Mr. Panda and I'll Wait, Mr. Panda). The illustrations are bright. Mr. Panda's expressions are great.

I think Mr. Panda needs to meet Ryan T. Higgins's Bruce.

Themes: Black and White Animals, Manners, Gifts, Grumpy Bears
