There are plenty of other great books in the library that remind us of the importance of heartfelt apologies. In the book "Junie B. Jones and Some Sneaky Peeky Spying," the main character learns that she's wrong to believe that "You don't actually have to mean I'm sorry 'cause nobody can even tell the difference." In fact, a contrite heart and desire for forgiveness is an important part of confession.
Another of my favorite books on this theme is "The Berenstain Bears and the Truth." Curious George also seems to be getting into trouble all of the time and apologizing for his mistakes. There are lots of great books on this theme, and I hope you get the chance to at least one this week. If you do, I hope you'll share your thoughts, and I'll be back next week with more recommendations.
