I'm Sorry by Gina and Mercer Mayer is about a little boy that says, "I'm Sorry," whenever he makes a mistake. Finally his mother tells him saying, "I'm Sorry, just isn't enough because you need to learn to be more careful. It is a good lesson for young children delivered in a cute story to teach responsibility.

I loved the lesson at the end. It was valuable to tell children that sometimes sorry isn't enough, and they just need to be more careful.

Mercer Mayer Little Critter books are always a nice read. The illustrations are always fun for the little guys to look at while you are reading to them. In this book the wording is basic but not super basic. A beginning reader could probably eventually learn to read on their own but starting out would need a little help. Litte Critter is always saying "I'm sorry" for things he's done and eventually he learns that you can't just always say it, without learning to change your ways to back up what ...more

I learned that accidents happens sometimes. You should try not to get your new shoes in the mud or your new shoes will get all dirty. Accidents happen when sometimes you turn the tv up too loud and you forgot to ask mommy if it's ok. And that's all I learned.
You know, as I read, I said to myself, "Wow this kid just needs to be more careful. He says he's sorry, but just keeps doing whatever he wants." And then the ending happened: sometimes "sorry" isn't good enough and you just need to be more careful. Goooood lesson.

I like how Little Critter learns to apologize, acknowledges that sometimes he isn't sorry, and learns that sometimes you have to do better than just apologize. Very true to children's (and sometimes adults') behavior.

This is an absolute adorable story! This is a great family book and is also good to read to children who do things and believe that everything is okay if they just say they are sorry all the time.

Sometimes saying "I'm sorry" isn't enough, especially if you don't mean it or you keep doing the same thing over and over. Our little friend learns that actions speak louder than words.

One of the better books in my opinion. Julia really liked this one too. Sometimes the Critter books get a little old for me but this one I can always read with no problem.
