Reviews - What do customers think about Otter And Owl Say Im Sorry (I Can Read )?
Forgiveness is actions and words Aug 18, 2009
If you have children you know that two of the hardest lessons to teach are 1) Share and 2) Apologize. I have to say that for the most part my girls are very good at sharing. Not that they have had much choice about that since they are twins. They are also pretty good at apologizing.
But just like Otter and Owl they are very good at getting mad, breaking each others toys and making one another cry. I know that it is a part of childhood but as a mom you want to share and teach them God's love for one another...with out lecturing a-l-l the t-i-m-e!
Otter and Owl clearly showed my girls the meaning of friendship, love and forgiveness. My girls could relate to this story so well because they too have "treasured" scooters and they too have scratched or broken something that belonged to their sister.
Owl displayed a kind and gentle heart by reaching out to his friend Otter. Otter displayed a forgiving and loving heart by accepting the apology and friendship.
I loved that these two little characters were able to speak more about God's forgiveness and desire for us to forgive others easier and more efficiently then a hundred of my lectures.Otter and Owl Say I'm Sorry (I Can Read! / Otter and Owl Series)

Crystal Bowman's "I Can Read!" Level 1 book Otter and Owl Say I'm Sorry is a tale most kids can relate to.
Otter has a brand new scooter. He lets Owl steer as they ride together, trying to make it go even faster by coasting down a hill. They are having a great time - until they crash into a pond. Otter is mad. A wheel on the scooter is bent. "What kind of friend does that?" he asks.
Owl and Otter both go home and mope. Owl writes a heartfelt note asking for forgiveness and delivers it to Otter's front doorstep. Otter quickly forgives Owl. "God wants friends to forgive each other," he says. The buddies have pizza and thank God for friends, then go for another ride on the scooter. Otter fixes the wheel - sort of. Yet even though the scooter gives a wobbly ride, Owl and Otter still enjoy their time together.
What I Like: Owl and Otter are appealing characters; Kevin Zimmer's illustrations are vivid and cute, and the friends always struggle with familiar childhood difficulties. My nearly-four year old daughter loves this book.
What I Dislike: I wish Otter said God wants us to forgive everyone - not just friends.
Overall Rating: Very good.
