A Must for Children
A wonderful book for children who face hurtful situations with friends. It is so indelible, my 32 year old son 'Googled' it the other day remembering it from his childhood days. I purchased three this week for my grandchildren and to use as gifts.

I stumbled on this book when I was a Youth Pastor 15 years ago. It's not just for kids! It's a simple message of when we don't forgive and forget, the hurt can get so big that there's hardly room for us in our world. We'll become so self consumed that we can alienate ourselves from everybody. This book woke me up from a depressed state. We can't be self absorbed and happy at the same time. Forgive and move on...it's simple! Buy a few and share this book with others.
