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 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

Customer reviews


“Okay but won't be for everyone - I returned my copy”

The theological content of this book is fine but I found the grammer and language (and also font size) not to my taste or the family for whom I had bought it, so I returned it.
The pages are big but the font is really small so difficult for children to read along/follow.
Running the risk of sounding a bit snobby (!), the style of language/writing is a lot more down to earth/less proper English than many children's books. For some people, they will like that, but I didn't think it was right for the families I had in mind. It's a real shame, as I think this book could be great.


“Great give away”

This is my favourite of the Eric says series. The series is lovely to look at and easy to give away (all mums think they want to teach their kids to say sorry, thank you and please).
We used the books in story time the last 3 weeks of term then gave away the sorry books for children leaving for school. The sorry book clearly points to the gospel so great to give away.
The books are probably best for age 4 years and up as quite long for little ones.
