Um livro com ilustrações lindíssimas e que aborda temas muito importantes como a amizade, partilha, e a importância de pedir desculpa. Um livro essencial para qualquer criança a partir dos 2 anos. E também para muitos adultos!

Bear and Rabbit are the best of friends until they have a disagreement over a shiny object. Girls loved the shiny object depiction throughout the book. Sweet ending of forgiveness.

Sorry is a book all about the power of forgiveness. Bear and Rabbit are like two peas in a pod. They live together, cook together, even sleep in the same bunk. One day Bear and Rabbit happen across a reflective piece of old balloon. When Bear looks into it, he exclaims that he sees himself. But Rabbit disagrees. Rabbit believes the balloon has a picture of Rabbit himself on it. They fight over who they see in the balloon, and eventually they tear the balloon and storm away mad at each other. But ...more

This is such a cute book: well drawn pictures, and a simple, well told story about a rabbit and a bear who are best friends and do everything together. They cook breakfast together, sleep in bunk beds, hang out in tree houses, and are just cute, cute, cute. Until one day, they find something shiny and new (what looks like a broken mylar balloon). They argue over whether it’s a picture of rabbit, or a picture of bear (since they only see their own reflections) and fight, fight, fight. It’s a supe ...more

Bear and Rabbit are the best of friends until something out of the ordinary temporarily derails the relationship.

Children and grown-ups alike will relate to this tale of friendship, tested by the discovery of a shiny balloon. Vanity and selfishness rear their ugly head and threaten to destroy a truly sweet
relationship. Readers will recognize Tim Warnes’ beautiful illustrations which clearly depict the range of emotions Bear and Rabbit experience. This is a great book to read aloud one on one

The actually shiny "shiny thing" is a bit of a gimmick, but it's one kids will like, and it is used nicely in the finale. And kids will also probably chortle at the animals not recognizing their own reflections. Cute enough that I wouldn't mind another book about these two friends--unless Landa feels the need to add another gimmick!

I liked some bits and I don't like some bits. I didn't like the bit where they pulled the shiny thing in two and were mad at each other. I did like the bit where they put the shiny thing together and were nice to each other again.

Another one for my little sister.

To tell you the truth, the only think I liked were the illustrations. The words the author used didn't make the story appealing to me, but I can see how 2-3 year old children may like it.

Cute story about a bear and a rabbit who have a fight--N. really likes because of the shiny pictures and because he's learning about "sorry" these days. I realized the illustrator's wife illustrates the Bear Snores On books, and their styles are similar!

A good book for starting the discussion about resolving conflict. Not the most entertaining or the most interesting, but it was fine. Nothing unique, but kids need to hear lots of examples of saying Sorry! Don't buy it though; check it out from the library.

Pretty good book with nice pictures. The story is solid and does a good job showing how disagreements can happen between friends, and the value of deciding to say, "Sorry."

This is an adorable picture book. My two-year old loves it, and started saying "sorry" after we read it.
