BROWNIE AND PEARL MAKE GOOD by Cynthia Rylant with illustrations by Brian Biggs. Beach Lane, 2012.
When Brownie and Pearl knock over the radio and break it, they want to make it right. They clean up around the house, but they cannot fix the radio. Then Brownie gets an idea that sets things right once more. Kids need to see how important it is to take responsibility for one's actions and how love is unconditional. For older readers, this is a perfect tie in to WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE by Maurice Sendak.
