SUMMARY: This book is told in first person by a boy who is learning how to control his anger and frustration and how to forgive others. When someone does something wrong against him, he speaks to that person when he can and tells them how he feels. Even when the other person does not apologize for a wrong, he is learning how to forgive because it makes himself feel better.

ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations appear to be digitally created. They are colorful and full of expression and life. There are a variety of children of different races represented.

REVIEW: I enjoyed this book very much. It covered the subject of forgiveness from several angles. It discusses the anger felt when someone does something wrong to you and reasons why the boy would want to let go of that anger. It discusses how forgiving others is good for yourself not just the other person. The language is simple for even the youngest learners. And there are four full pages of questions and activities in the back that can be used by teachers and parents alike.

AGE RECOMMENDATION: Advertized for ages 4-8
