Zach Apologizes

by William Mulcahy (2012, Free Spirit, 12.99/hardback)

This book teaches children social skills using an apology strategy presented as the "four-square" apology, which is illustrated with prompts that kids will easily understand and remember. Like many seven-year-olds, Zach tries to ignore problems he creates, but finally, with his mom's help, he learns the four steps to apologizing: (1) say what you did; (2) tell how it made the other person feel; (3) say what you could have done instead; (4) make it up to the person. Color. Grades K-3. [8” x 8”...32 pages]

[8” x 10”...32 pages]
