      This book is about a boy named Jack. Jack has a friend named Charlie who gets away with anything by just saying sorry and not really meaning it. Jack knows better, but he doesn’t stand up to Charlie. In the end, both Charlie and Jack learn a lesson about false apologies. I would use this story to teach my students the importance of a meaningful apology. This book also teaches students about respect, responsibility, and friendship. I would also use this story in my classroom to help students ma [...]

      This is one book in a series of three that deal with bullying. In this book the message is given that a simple, "sorry," without truly meaning it does not make up for wrong done on purpose. Jack's friend Charlie says he's sorry for many wrongs, but without meaning it, and Jack learns it's not the same.

      This book is great! It is about children and using the word "Sorry" to get out of things. This book is by a boy who thinks his friend says sorry to much and doesn't mean it. Even though he knows his friend is wrong he feels like he should act that way too so he can stay friends. In the end they both realize sorry is not always enough.

      This topic doesn't get looked at enough. I've always believed that making children apologize when they do not mean it is counterproductive. This story is a great one to share about what an apology really is. It helps build empathy. Also included are other themes about true friends, and responsibility. A great read and a must have for the classroom!

      I'm always concerned that my kid is going to be the kid that goes along with bullying (he's not vicious, just likes to fit in with other kids). This is a great book that teaches kids to think before they follow a friend that makes bad choices, and to make recompense for their actions instead of just giving an empty apology.It also features multi-racial characters, which I appreciated.

      Um, though it is a good issue it is too wordy and not that intersing. I think this would just give kids the idea that most people don't care if you are sincere when you apologize. I had to force myself to finish a picture book. Grades 2+

      Has a great message and is perfect for a discussion about how we show we are sorry and not just say it.

      A book about being accountable for your actions and doing more than just saying "sorry".

      A fantastic book explaining the meaning of an apology, and how it is more about actions than words.

      A useful teaching book about the importance of saying "sorry" and meaning it - and demonstrating it through your actions.
