Description

When Eric smashes Percy's pot of prize pansies, he tries to get away with it. But when none of his tactics work, Eric says sorry. His father pays for a new pot and Eric learns that grace is epic.

This fun, rhyming storybook introduces young children to the biblical concept of grace and teaches them to say sorry.

Dai Hankey is a Welsh church-planting pastor who's also a DJ and rapper. The "Eric says…" books use his rapping gifts to create fun, punchy stories that young children will love to listen to.

Combined with stunning new artwork by Xavier Bonet, Eric says sorry will quickly become a firm favourite with young children.

Teach children gratitude and dependence with the other books in the series: Eric says thanks and Eric says please

As a parent of young children, the unfolding of Eric's story is all-too-familiar. But there's a twist that turns his predicament on its head! Grace is clearly explained, demonstrated, and applied. Kids and parents will appreciate this colorful and creative lesson on forgiveness and grace.

Independent reviews

"A lovely story"

Beth, There's Always Time For Tea, October 12th 2016

The story is written in short, easy sentences so it’s good for a new reader or a grown-up reading to a little one … It’s a lovely little story, [my daughters] both really enjoyed it, and it’s nice reading a story that is teaching a lesson in grace without the kids really realising that they are learning anything!... continue reading

"My daughter loved the rhyming"

Julie, Picking Up Toys, October 10th 2016

The book is a good sized paperback written by Dai Hankey and beautifully illustrated by Xavier Bonet. Dai Hankey is a Welsh (the best obviously) rapper and pastor who also happens to be fab at writing children’s stories.... continue reading

“Excellent for 3-5's”

This book explains the difficult concept of Grace in a very accessible format for kids and adults. It uses saying 'sorry' - something we all need to learn in a very funny way and the fact that it is a rhyming story with rhythm is great. The illustrations are good too.
I particularly like Eric trying to glue the pansy's back together again and him discovering that Grace is epic!!

“Very Realistic”

My five-year-old daughter was gripped by this story. She was able to relate to Eric and his mistake and how he tries to cover it up and blame others. The story then moves on as Eric’s Dad shows him kindness and points Eric in turn to God’s grace.

This book teaches children about honesty, about saying sorry and points to God’s kindness in Jesus. It is well illustrated and the language is generally clear and simple. The book provides a good starting point to help children think about sin and grace. Suitable for 3-7s.

I was given this book free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review

“Lovely illustration of grace”

I have just watched the dramatised reading of this book. It is a wonderful illustration of how grace works for both the young and no-so young. In addition it helps children understand the importance of honesty, not blaming others, confession and the joy of being forgiven. Dai's use of poetry and contemporary vocabulary gives a real sense of pace and relevance. I look forward to seeing the book itself and will be ordering copies for the younger children in Sunday School for Christmas this year!

“Realistic, moving and grace-centred”

A really accessible book for children about grace. My 5-year-old-son read it first and when I asked him if Eric said sorry in the end, he said, "Yes, and his Dad taught him about grace."
The scene featuring Eric and his family will be all-too familiar to most parents: one child is guilty; the other is trying to stir up the trouble.
I was very moved reading it to my children, and pray that it will help them to understand the importance of truthfulness and confession, and also the wonderful gift of free-to-us-but-not-to-Him-grace.
