Eric Says Sorry
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.

“As a father of four grown children, a resource like “Eric Says Sorry” would have been so useful to share the good news of God’s grace with my then small children. With simplicity, clarity and grace, Dai and Xavier do just that. The simple story-line and drawings will make it easy for any parent to engage in helpful conversations with their child.”
– Dr Timothy Lane, President of the Institute for Pastoral Care, author of Living without Worry
“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.”
-Gloria Furman, author of Treasuring Christ When Your Hands Are Full and Missional Motherhood
“We love reading to our kids – and all the more when it’s one of those rare books, like this one, that combines four elements: the right length, good rhyme and illustrations, and significant soul-shaping truth. We’re eager for every good help we can get not only to teach our kids to say sorry, but also to feel the force, beauty, and cost of God’s “undeserved kindness when we’ve been bad.””
