Description: From time to time, accidents happen and Little Scholastic: Uh-Oh, I''m Sorry introduces young readers to a set of important words to use when they do. With engaging, oversized lift-the-flaps on every spread, children will learn the true meaning of "uh-oh" and "I''m sorry" while also recognizing that simple mistakes can always be fixed.

Jake's Review: Cute baby book for midgets like Jesse. He really could use this since he never says I'm sorry or cares about other peoples stuff.  I think babies would like the pictures because they are simple and there are not too many words.  I think its a well made book too and even Jesse would have a hard time ripping it apart.
Jake's Rating: 10/10 (For babies - not based on how I liked it)  

Mom's Review: Nice older brother eh?  Cute and colourful board book on manners for babies and toddlers.  I liked how tough the book was, as Jacob mentioned above, my little toddler trashes books and even-though he did try, he could not rip this one!  This would be a good purchase for a public library as many of their lift the flap books are easily trashed. Nice and simple vocabulary and bright pictures will engage even the older toddlers. Would be a good one for teaching simple reading to a younger child. Liked that the story even mentioned that adults also make mistakes and we have to say sorry too.  Nice humour at the end of the story for the parent reading.
Mom's Rating: 10/10 (must mention again how strong the book was)

We received this from Scholastic in exchange for an honest review -- and as you can see you are guaranteed honesty from Jake
