Martha Doesn't Say Sorry!
This scenario might sound all too familiar— if not from your experiences as a parent, then at least your own experiences as a child. Problem solved… now stop bickering. You know inside, however, that the offend ed still feels bitter, because the apology was not sincere. And while it may seem like the offend er got off easy— not even having to show proper remorse or use a sincere tone—he is actually the one who loses out the most. He not only learns a poor lesson that he can get away with lies and empty words, but does not have the opportunity to experience true reconciliation and restoration of relationships. He will probably continue inflicting similar offenses, feel less remorse than he should, and undergo less positive character change than he could have.
The book demonstrates to children how to say sorry and forgive someone. Their mother guides them through a valuable lesson of understanding, empathy.

Children’s Book Review – Sorry Day
The students in the scene recognize it, and anyone watching the movie recognizes it. The point is, your kid can spot a bad apology when they see one. But when the time comes for them to take ownership, saying the right thing can be extremely difficult. Our job is to model for our kids what a good apology looks like, and what it means to take responsibility for our actions. Some parents—myself included—avoid apologizing to their kids because they think it will diminish their authority. When you apologize to your teen, they gain more respect for you. Let me prove it to you: think of someone who recently genuinely apologized to you.
This is my favourite of the Eric says series. The series is lovely to look at and easy to give away all mums think they want to teach their kids to say sorry, thank you and please. We used the books in story time the last 3 weeks of term then gave away the sorry books for children leaving for school. The sorry book clearly points to the gospel so great to give away. The books are probably best for age 4 years and up as quite long for little ones. I loved this book so much I bought 10!
