I’m Sorry by Barry Timms & Sean Julian

Story Book Sunday 👧🏽👧🏽📚♥️

Last night we read I’m Sorry by Barry Timms and Sean Julian.



Scribble and Swoop are the best of friends – until the day they have a TERRIBLE QUARREL! Which friend will be the first to say sorry? And can an apology fix their precious friendship?

The perfect story for teaching young children the importance of meaningful apologies.


Our Thoughts

This is a huge hardback, with a lovely picture of a fluffy owl cuddling a squirrel on the front; such an endearing image and very appealing to the Littles!  There was lots of “ooo-ing” and “aahhh-ing” when I whipped this book out!


I’m Sorry contains beautiful, cosy-looking illustrations with a lovely muted and calming colour scheme throughout.  This particularly helped with delivering and discussing a serious message in a fun way!


The themes of this book are friendship and sharing and apologising when we have done something unkind.  It triggered much discussion about polite and kind behavior and the Littles really enjoyed going back through the book to point out where things could have been different.


I’m Sorry is a gorgeous and gentle introduction to the idea of sharing and we really recommend it for discussing how to work though problems.


Our thanks go to Leilah Skelton and Little Tiger Books for our beautiful review copy.  It’s out on 25th June and available here to pre-order now.


Hope you all have lovely week!

Until next time! Have a wonderful day!
