I Forgive You
by Nicole Lataif
"Wherever you go, in all that you do, make forgiveness part of you!"
Written by Nicole Lataif, author of the award-winning Forever You: A Book about Your Soul and Body, this book teaches children ages 4-7 a balanced, Christian view of forgiveness. Simply structured sentences and scenarios paired with whimsical illustrations show children the power of three simple words: I Forgive You.
Examples of when to forgive are illustrated, along with simple explanations of what happens when forgiveness is withheld. Children are encouraged to forgive as God does - gently, and with the willingness to do so again and again. They are also shown how to forgive without compromising their safety.
A note "For Grown-Ups" explains that this resource sparks conversation with children about when to forgive in a healthy way. It stresses God's never-ending patience and love, laying the foundations for a young child's faith formation. Ending with a petition to God for help in forgiving others, I Forgive You: Love We Can Hear, Ask For, and Give demonstrates to children the peace that comes with forgiveness.
