I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book to my 7 and 9 year old kids! The story was moving and left us discussing forgiveness and the beauty and importance of this ,act of grace. My 9 year old son actually remarked, "Mom, I feel like this story softened my heart." Lovely pictures and rhyming tempo kept the kids engaged throughout the book. Beautiful!

You can't set a foot wrong teaching your kids about forgiveness, as this book does. I also love the rhyming. It is a wonderful way to read to your kids, and a wonderful message to leave them with at the end of day, as they drift off to sleep.
Read thru the book twice so far and becomes more meaningful and endearing each and every time. Wonderful story with an excellent message!
I read this story to my kids last night and they LOVED it! The metaphor is deep enough to be interesting for adults and yet clear enough to be understood by even my three year old. The poetic rhythm make it easy to keep their attention and the illustrations are darling!
My 5 year old son, who never sits still, sat quiet the whole time as I read the magical words of this book and then said "I liked that book mom, thanks for reading it to me!" The whimsical illustrations and beautiful flow of the writing held his attention as the powerful truth of its message invaded his heart. Good good stuff.
An absolutely delightful story that my 6 ad 8 year olds were raptly following to see what would happen next. I can imagine using this story in teachable moments in the future when there is a forgiveness issue within my children's relationships--and frankly--I will probably think of it next time I am called to forgive an offense; it's beautiful. The illustrations are adorable.
A beautiful and inspiring story of how forgiveness sets us free. This book is a well written reminder of how to guard our heart against offense and fly high!!! Gorgeously illustrated. I HIGHLY recommend.
Absolutely touching story of forgiveness unlike any you've heard. I was surprised as tears came suddenly when my heart connected. Love this....it's a hidden gem!!
