(synopsis from Goodreads)

This book is so sweet. I can't help but think it's also pretty... meme-able (is that a word?), in that its little verses and pictures are cute reminders of things that all of us would do well to remember when we make mistakes.

The rhyming verse is simple but meaningful, and the illustrations are adorable. I can't find much to complain about here. This is a great picture book for those who are still learning and growing... which is pretty much everyone, really.
