Annie is so excited to go to school today! She is wearing her favorite shoes, and she gets to play with the dollhouse a bit before her schoolwork begins.
Today is her friend Catherine’s birthday, so as a special treat, the class has cupcakes and milk for a snack. What an exciting day! But then Annie spills her milk, and it goes all over the table—and all over Catherine’s pretty birthday dress too. When all the other students shout and laugh, Annie begins to feel very sad. The teacher, Ms. Kimble, tells her not to cry and that spills can always be cleaned up. But how does Catherine feel? Can she forgive Annie?
In this children’s story, Annie learns that accidents can happen to anyone and that it’s important to be understanding, forgiving, and kind.
