Gandhi said, "The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong." Children's literature offers a wonderful medium for helping your child develop the ability to forgive others, be it family members, friends, or others. We've compiled a list of the best children's books that share stories about forgiveness. Some are motivational stories. Some are funny short stories. Some are famous stories you might recognize. All are helpful in sharing a lesson on forgiveness with children (or adults). The list includes three types of books: board books, picture books, and chapter books. Board books are great for newborns and toddlers. Picture books are a good option to read aloud with toddlers or for young readers just learning to read on their own, usually elementary school age. They're also a good option when looking for teaching material, like if you need a short story about forgiving a friend or want to develop a children's lesson about forgiveness. Chapter books are great for kids elementary through early middle school age. Please let us know what books you would add to the list.
