I'm Sorry You Got Mad

Illustrated by Julie Kwon
Newbery Honor winner Kyle Lukoff explores the importance of learning to apologize.

Jack wants to apologize for hurting Zoe's feelings. He just can't seem to find the right words. 

Turns out there's more to an apology than just saying "I'm sorry."

Elevated by equally charming illustrations and text, I'm Sorry You Got Mad is a journey in learning the importance of an apology that goes deeper than just words.
