7th July Global Forgiveness Day

July 7th is celebrated as Global Forgiveness Day. Forgiving someone, asking for forgiveness and apologising are often not easy things to do. It  is something we work hard on with the very young children I teach. Teachers often burst into the library saying, 'Quick I need a book about forgiveness for circle time.' And of course no book does exactly what they want, but I often use these to get teachers started.

  1. I thought of Blue Sky yellow Kite as another possibility. Such a complex topic for adults and children. Also my old favourite A friend like Ed has a lovely scene at the end where Ed forgives Mildred. I wondered also about Lilly's purple plastic purse. I need to look into the books on your post. Once again I don't have these apart from Desmond.
