This book is not only good for children to learn about forgiveness, but also for adults to remember that something that seems like a big deal in the moment, may not actually be a big deal in the larger scheme of things. It is one of the more enjoyable books in the Berenstain Bears series, in my opinion. The book not only provides an opportunity for children to learn about forgiving others, it also provides a good opportunity for children to put themselves in the place of the person who is being ...more
My cousin didn't get as excited about this one as the others, but she's really enjoying herself with these stories. She keeps asking me to read them over and over. So excited that I got to show her these and experience them first hand with her!

I absolutely loved the message in this book. This book is great for students to really bring in character building. I feel like from K-5, they are really growing to develop what it means to share, and work out problems with others. This book is all about forgiveness, and one of the brothers really seeing where he was selfish and mean to his other brother. By the end of the story, they both forgave each other, and really saw how he was being selfish. Great book!
My eight-year-old grandson called this morning and read me The Forgiving Tree over the phone. What a pleasure to hear the story unfold that way! I did foresee the damage to Brother Bear's brand new birthday bike, but Sister's words of wisdom were a surprise. With plenty of color and action, gentle storylines and age-appropriate teaching, the Living Lights series is ideal for my grandson--and, I'm sure, for many other young readers.
