I’ve got to ask my mommy,

And I make sure to say . . . “Please.”


What to say first thing in the morning?  What to say when someone’s in my way?  What to say before I go to sleep?  Lift the flaps to see all the answers.
Bright, cheerful illustrations will interest even the youngest children.

About the Artist:


Patti Argoff received a BFA from The School of Visual Arts in 1981, but actually was drawing long before that- she was drawing before she could talk. At least that’s what her mother claims. Patti works in traditional watercolor on paper. Her paintings of animals, subjects in historical costume, kids and family situations have a lively animated quality, while paying close attention to detail and often with a wink of humor.

When she’s not drawing and painting, Patti enjoys working in stained glass and is involved in fostering and re-homing stray or abandoned Chihuahuas. She also teaches a class in painting in watercolors for adults through a local high school’s continuing education program.

Patti has illustrated numerous books, including Miller the Green Caterpillar (2004 River Road Press), Happy Birthday To Me (2006 Hachai Publishing) and Mitzvah Guess Who? (2020 Hachai Publishing).
