Right now, my 5-year-old is working on how and why we apologize. He doesn't always get it. I love that this book validates his feelings and fears but also emphasizes the importance of saying sorry. It also gives examples of how NOT to apologize and I think that's just as important. A difficult topic with simple explanations and cute illustrations. Honestly, I think some adults could benefit from reading this book as well. Recommended By Rose H., Powells.com

From the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award-winning creators of See the Cat: Three Stories About a Dog comes a funny and handy guide that explains just how (and how not ) to say "I'm sorry."
Wouldn't the world be a better place if everyone knew how to apologize? Luckily, this humorous guidebook is full of practical tips about when, why, and how to say you're sorry. From a porcupine who accidentally popped his friend's balloon to a snail who was running so fast he stepped on a sloth's toes, hilarious examples and sweet illustrations abound. For both listeners who are just learning and older readers who need a refresher, this book will come as a welcome reminder that even though apologizing can be hard, it doesn't have to be complicated.
