Learn how to say sorry by winning this hilarious guide to apologies

We're giving away five copies of David LaRochelle and Mike Wohnoutka's sweet and funny book in our competition.

The front cover of How to Apologize

It's not always easy to say sorry... but David LaRochelle and Mike Wohnoutka's brilliant new book aims to help children understand how to do it well!

Recognising that everyone makes mistakes - including a porcupine who accidentally popped his friend's balloon and a snail who stepped on his friend's toes - How to Apologize is a funny, sweet guide to making amends.

From finding the right moment to making sure you're sincere, the book is full of practical advice that could help children getting to grips with the word 'sorry' (and it might just be useful for some grown-ups, too!)

Full of warmth and humour, alongside illustrations that are bursting with character, we think you'll love sharing How to Apologize with your family.

We have five copies to give away, so if you fancy winning one simply answer the question below and leave your details before the closing date of 11pm on Thursday, 15 July. Good luck!
