Mr. Smith is the green thumb of the neighborhood, and his colorful garden and perfectly manicured lawn are his pride and joy. So, when he eyes the neighborhood kids traipsing through his yard and trampling his flowers, he roars, "GET OFF MY LAWN!"

The thunderous scolding sends all the kids sprinting home and blaming "mean" Mr. Smith for ruining their fun. But one mom knows exactly where the blame really belongs and helps the children understand why they need to make amends for their damaging and disrespectful behavior. 

New York Times best-selling author and illustrator Michael Garland uses evocative illustrations and crisp writing to introduce young children the skills of "Asking Permission" and "Making an Apology." Tips for parents and educators are included to help children better understand how their behaviors can affect those around them.
