Energetic Benjamin Bear gets into his share of trouble! From sending Snippy’s hat flying into the water, to flinging sand all over Lofty, he has many occasions that he should apologize to his friends. He forgets though, until someone does something to him. Then, he thinks back to all of the things that he has done and sets out to make it right.

Max: “This bear, Benjamin, sure does a lot of naughty things. He isn’t very careful. He shoveled sand all over that giraffe. That isn’t good. But then that dog ran over his berries. Then the bear said sorry to all the people that he did naughty things to. I liked when he gave them all berries and then they all ate them.”

Parent’s comments:

“Benjamin Bear Says Sorry” by Claire Freedman teaches the importance of apologizing to others. The lesson is presented in an entertaining way that will hold any young child’s attention. The illustrations complement the text nicely and the characters are fun and full of personality.
