How to Apologize

We rated this book:


Apologizing is hard. It is hard for everyone, even very young children. People feel embarrassed and uncomfortable when they have to apologize, but it is an important skill to learn. And, after all, as this book tells readers, everyone makes mistakes. Some of those mistakes are little and some are big. But the best thing to do is to say you are sorry, even if you think the other person owes you an apology too or even if it is somebody you don’t like very much. And you don’t have to make it a big thing. You can simply say that you are sorry. Don’t make a lot of excuses about why you did something. You can even write a note, but just get it done.

Author David LaRochelle has written a sweet book that will entertain little ones while teaching them some very important lessons without them ever knowing they are learning. He shows all this with good examples and funny situations. The delightful illustrations by Mike Wohnoutka complete the text perfectly with cute animal characters and lots of humorous details to keep listeners engaged. This is a super book that belongs in every home and library.
