Today two books that I have previously read are being released, & the first is the adorable children’s book called The Girl Who Said Sorry by Hayoung Yim!
The Girl Who Said Sorry is a very quick read, with only 16 pages, but it carries a very important message for young girls. The book shows several examples of when girls are told contradicting things whilst growing up, for example being told that we’re too thin & then being told not to eat something later on the same day – for which we then apologise for! The book then goes on to show The Girl Who Said Sorry deciding that she’s no longer going to apologise for being herself, & that it is okay to express yourself – that it’s not something to apologise for!
With gorgeous illustrations & poetic wording, The Girl Who Said Sorry is perfect for little girls who are just starting to learn to read & for the ones who may be questioning how they fit into this world.
