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!

cute book on forgiveness, although I couldn't read all of it at school, since it talked about God. :(
We love all berenstain bear books!
