Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Forgive and Let Go! by Cheri J Meiners

Title: Forgive And Let Go! A Book about Forgiveness (Being the Best Me series)Forgive and Let go

Author: Cheri J Meiners

Illustrator: Elizabeth Allen

Publisher: Free spirit Publishing

Rating: 4/5

Aimed at youngsters aged 4 to 8 years old, this book tries to help children understand that when someone does or says something wrong to them, forgiving them doesn’t change what happened but it can change themselves. It encourages children to choose to be kind to each other and seek the good in others rather than holding grudges or negative attitudes. There are a variety of situations cited and discussed with illustrations that enhance the understanding of events and will also help prompt discussions.

After the children’s portion of the book, there is an adult section containing advice on how to use the book with children and suggesting “Ways to Reinforce the Ideas in Forgive and Let Go!”  These could be useful for parents or teachers with strategies to reinforce the message and help embed these attitudes. The world would be a much better place if more children grow up willing to forgive and let go – it is also quite a lot of adults would benefit from, too!

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
