If you like Franklin and Arthur children’s books, you’ll love the children’s story Punk the Skunk Learns to Say Sorry. Children, their parents, and their teachers will enjoy this wonderful tale. With adorable animal pictures, children will want to read this book. Punk the Skunk teased other animals in his class or performed harmless pranks, but one day he went too far. When no one wanted to sit with him, he realized his pranks had gone too far. Will his friends forgive him? Can Punk the Skunk learn to distinguish between harmless jokes and hurtful hijinks? Author Misty Black has written a story that children can relate to and that teachers will want to read to their class. Besides enjoying the story, children will learn to recognize bullying and how to deal with it—and how to apologize when you have done something wrong.

Punk the Skunk Learns to Say Sorry is a realistic story of life at school. The cute animal students learn first-hand how gags can transform into harmful situations. Should the other students laugh at the pranks or walk away? At first, Punk the Skunk thinks his friends need to learn how to take a joke; it’s their fault, not his. But when a friend helps him up and uses the term “bullied,” Punk realizes that maybe he has been a bully. What can Punk do to make it up to his friends? Will his friends accept his methods of making amends? Author Misty Black has added subtle anti-bullying survival solutions into a children’s picture book that parents and teachers will love. The cute and adorable animal illustrations will attract children and pull them into the book, while the relatable story will keep them reading. I highly recommend this for students in kindergarten to grade 4.
