    Back before the internet, we had Little Golden Books' The Saggy Baggy Elephant, and the Poky Little Puppy; but now the hive mind of pop culture has identified a brand new children's book superstar! Martha the Otter! I read Martha to my niece, and I can tell you it was a delight from beginning to end! The artwork is funny; and the tale of Martha the Otter is in a class by itself. Clever, endearing, and deceptively educational...Martha Doesn't Say Sorry is charming from cover to cover. This is sure to be a beloved memory for your child in the same way that your favorite childrens book was for you. Pick this one up, you WILL NOT regret it!

    “Martha Doesn’t Say Sorry!,” written by Samantha Berger and illustrated by Bruce Whatley, is shared in an audio version and is an excellent story for all young children to hear. Martha can be a very nice girl and does very nice things. However, there are times when Martha is not so nice. One day, Martha is having one of those days filled with not so nice actions. Martha wants a cookie, a piggy back ride and a hug, but Martha will not say sorry, so she will not get these things. Martha just does not want to say “sorry,” so she thinks about it for a while and decides to finally say “I’m sorry.” After saying, “I’m sorry,” Martha’s family and Martha both feel good. Now Martha says “I’m Sorry” when she does something wrong.

    This is a great story for young children as it teaches the importance of being sorry for one’s negative actions. The story begins by stating what Martha is good at, as it is important that the positive qualities someone has are stressed as well. This story is written very well as everyone does have moments and days that are filled with bad and negative choices and actions, yet how they are handled and dealt with is what is important. Saying “I’m sorry” and forgiving these bad actions can be very important. The quality of the audio story is very good and my four year-old daughter's attention was held throughout the story.
