Sassy Pants Makes Amends Perfect Paperback – April 17, 2012
Best Books of the Year So Far in fiction, nonfiction, mysteries, children's books, and much more.
Sassy Pants is crying because nobody trusts her. Old Clyde explains that she has broken friendships and needs to sincerely apologize, do good deeds, make amends and earn trust. The others learn to forgive.
Adorable characters. Carol A. Brown has done a great job. Great for classroom reading.
Reminiscent of Beatrix Potter! Comes with code for free audio version and downloadable parent/teacher manual from author's website. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book!
From the Author
I thought the first story was the only one...until I started typing. Great fun to watch the story unfold and flow onto the computer screen.

The naughty piggy had spent the previous summer making life miserable for all the other farm animals and now she is bearing the consequences. No one wants to play with her. No one trusts her.
In desperation she seeks advice from the wise old farm horse who teaches Sassy about asking forgiveness and making amends for her bad behavior. It's not an easy lesson for the self-centered pig, but with the help of Ms. Molly the sheep, Sassy learns how to be a good friend.
I love "Sassy Pants Makes Amends"--a story about true forgiveness and the consequences of our actions. The dialogue is delightful and filled with character lessons laced with humor.
A wonderful, insightful children's tale!
As a parent, there is much to talk about in this sweet book -- educationally, spiritually, and emotionally. I found this to be a delightful book, and for any child who didn't grow up on a farm, they will especially enjoy learning about the endearing animals in this story.
What could she do to make the other animals like her? It would be nice to have friends to play with. Finally Miss Molly and the wise old horse that lived on the farm came up with a plan. They would use positive attitudes and acts of kindness to teach Sassy how to be a friend to others. Then the other animals decided they would follow Miss Molly's example.
But they probably thought she would try to play some kind of trick on them again.
Will they be able to make amends?
Will Sassy ever get to play with any of them?
Why should they feel sorry for her or forgive her?
Do you think if she forgave Farmer White and Mrs. White for sending her back to the pig pen that God would heal her bitter heart and let others see she was sincere in her apologies?
Do you think they might find it in their heart to forgive her?
This is such a good book for children to learn to be kind and humble. Not vindictive and destructive or being a bully.
In the Lord's Prayer it says, "Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.I think this book is a good example of that verse in the Lord's Prayer.
The colorful and fun illustrations will spark the child's imagination bringing the words alive within the illustrations.
I highly recommend this book.
I received a free copy of this book from the author for review. I was in no way compensated for this review. It is my own opinion.
Ms. Molly tells the children how Old Clyde, the Clydesdale horse, discovered Sassy Pants all alone, her eyes red from crying. When Clyde learned why Sassy Pants was so sad, he told her she needed to make amends. Sassy Pants didn't know what that meant, but she was willing to learn. The story gently teaches us the big words.
Sassy Pants goes back to all the animal friends she had hurt to try to regain their trust and friendship, offering the reader, or listener, many important messages. The animal characters are fun, too.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for review from the author. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255.
