Synopsis

Excuses, Excuses! by Rebecca Rissman

This book teaches young learners about honesty and accepting responsibility by following one particularly naughty child through one very bad day. Lively illustrations showing a guilty child at the scene of several crimes throughout the day (standing by spilled milk, holding a broken toy, sneaking a Christmas cookie, etc) alongside hilariously improbably excuses, such as The dog did it! or I don't even like cookies! will make children laugh as well as teach them important lessons about honesty.
