Praise for Sorry (Really Sorry):
A 2021 CCBC Choice Book!
*“An exploration of the repercussions of a bad mood could have turned into a pedantic moral tale, but Cotler and Bliss’ light touch and humorous approach offer insight without judgment. Clever, funny, and true—really.” ––Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
*“At the farm where author and children’s book editor Cotler and artist Bliss’s emotionally honest story is set, bad moods aren’t just contagious—they’re epidemic . . . .The animals, rendered expressively by Bliss, learn what kids already know and adults too easily forget: the capacity to say “I’m sorry”–and mean it–is no small thing.”–PW (starred review)
“Cotler’s story is a simple yet valuable one, an excellent example for young readers, and a nice reminder for older readers that kindness goes a long way….a smart choice for any collection.”–SLJ
