Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Bright, digital illustrations feature children having simple accidents in this board book with flaps. "Uh-oh!" says a girl when bathtub water gets on the floor ("Sometimes I splash in the bath"). Lifting the big flap shows the girl apologizing and her mother assuring her, "It's okay. We can always dry off." Turns out, even parents make mistakes: "Uh-oh!" says dad when the spaghetti spills all over ("It's okay. We can get pizza!" says his son). Readers who feel anxious over their foibles should be reassured by the promise of tenderness and easy solutions. Also available: Please and Thank You! Up to age 2. (July)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Good manners make life move along more smoothly and that is the focus of this board book with big flaps. In the opening scene, a young boy knocks down some blocks which apparently were part of a structure that he was building with a friend. He apologizes to the young girl with "I'm sorry!" and she responds quite magnanimously "It's Okay. Let's build it again." The next scene address spilled food and again features an understanding parent and an apologetic young girl. The scenes represent normal events in kid's lives—coloring outside the lines and onto the floor, splashing water outside the tub, and best of all a mistake by dad when he tries to serve some spaghetti and meatballs. The back cover provides some guidance for parents and other caregivers. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
