It's Only Ink! Do you really mean it when you say sorry?
It's Only Ink!
Do you really mean it when you say sorry?
Charlie is always doing stuff he shouldn't. And he gets away with it! Jack, Charlie's friend, is shocked. How can Charlie get away with it when most of the time he does it on purpose?
After Charlie drew a mustache on his sister's favorite school picture, he was told by his mother to say he was sorry. He said it and went about his business. Jack didn't think Charlie meant it. Shouldn't saying sorry have meant something?
Trudy Ludwig gets the reader thinking with her delightful children's book, "Sorry!" Ludwig shows children consequences of Charlie's bad choices and the disastrous power of insincere apologies.
"Sorry!" is a perfect model for young children whether they are at home or in school--where Character Counts is a rule of thumb.
Realistic colorful illustrations by Maurie J. Manning adorn every page. Ludwig's book comes highly recommended by this reviewer and her three children.
