Children's LiteratureSeth and Jacob race their bicycles until Jacob crashes into Seth's yellow dump truck. Seth is not concerned that Jacob may be hurt, but is angry that his brand-new truck is broken. Although Jacob apologizes, Seth shouts, "You get out and don't ever come back." When Seth talks to his mother, who is shown in front of a computer, she asks, "Is that how you'd want Jacob to treat you?" Later when Seth accidentally breaks Grandma's stained glass lamp, Grandma surprises him with her forgiveness and concern for his well-being. The watercolor and pen drawings show that Seth is white with yellow curly hair. Jacob has brown skin and black hair. Pictures in cartoon balloons show what Seth is thinking. Seth's only apology is the act of knocking on Jacob's door. But all is forgiven. This title is part of "The Way I Act" series. Children may find this story a little heavy-handed. 2005, Albert Whitman & Company, Ages 3 to 6.
