Sorry, I Forgot to Ask!

By Julia Cook and illustrated by Kelsey De Weerd

(Grades K-6) RJ is making a lot of trips to the time-out chair! Without telling anyone, he and his best friend Sam decide to walk home from school instead of riding the bus. Later the two of them are caught trying to use Dad’s computer to get on the internet. After their piano lesson, RJ and his sister Blanche snack on Mom’s triple-layer double-chocolate cake with whipped cream frosting and spoil Grandma’s birthday party surprise.

Dad helps RJ learn how to do a better job of asking for permission, and when RJ and Sam return to school their principal has them practice making an apology. RJ feels a lot happier when he says he’s sorry to his teacher, the bus driver, and Grandma, and he learns that asking for permission will mean fewer trips to the time-out chair!

SORRY, I Forgot to Ask! teaches K-6 children social skills that can make home life happier and school more successful. Tips for parents and educators on how to teach and reinforce the skills are included. Softcover, 32 pages.


The activity book and CD are also available!

Activities and games in this book help K-6 students learn and use steps to the SORRY, I Forgot to Ask! skills of asking for permission and making an apology.
