I Did It. I'm Sorry. by Caralyn Buehner, Mark Buehner
Bucky Beaver has been happily chiseling the table legs with his new front teeth. When Mother brings dinner in, she is horrified! Who did this? Mother demands. What should Bucky do: (a) Tell Mom he thinks they have termites? (b) Run off to dam-building class? (c) Or say.I did it. I'm sorry. This hilarious quiz book points the way to good behavior by presenting a series of animals facing moral dilemmas. The answer to each question is concealed within the colorful artwork throughout and listed in the key at the back of the book. In addition, the illustrations contain cleverly hidden pictures of a variety of creatures. Children will laugh at these silly scenarios-as they're reminded that values such as honesty, dependability, and consideration for others provide the answer to every situation. An irresistible book for teaching manners, raved Letitia Baldrige about It's a Spoon, Not a Shovel (Dial). The Buehners' most recent book, Fanny's Dream, is a Boston Globe-Horn Book Award winner. Caralyn and Mark Buehner live in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because a few of the words were over our 5 year olds head. However, with a little rewording, some great lessons can be shared. From following the rules, to lying, to being kind with our words. We loved the illustrations and familar items hiding on every page. We had to read it twice the first time because we found more and more items on each page and them realized they were on every page. When we woke up the next morning, it was the first thing she wanted to do again. Great book!
