Sassy Pants Makes Amends
Sassy Pants’s bad behavior pushed everyone away. A close encounter with an electric fence broke off the stone that had been forming around her heart; it helped her begin to notice and care, but too late. No one trusted her.
How do you fix a friendship when you are the one who broke it? Old Clyde knew a way. He asked little Molly lamb to “be friendly” even though she didn’t trust Sassy Pants. The two of them put their heads together—but not too close—and came up with a plan to make amends—to think of something that was important to Gerald, Maude, and Kitty Cat and make it become important to Sassy Pants too—something that would go way beyond sorry and give the offended friend reason to trust her again.
Follow Sassy Pants as she works to repair the friendships she broke! Learn with her how to fix a friendship when you are the one who broke it. Find out how Sassy Pants learns to apologize, ask forgiveness and make amends with the help of two special friends. Making amends is not easy, but having friends is worth it!
