Skipping Stones

Does God Forgive Me? ; by August Gold; photos by Diane Hardy Waller ( SkyLight Paths ). Endorsed by Protestant, Catholic, Jewish and Bhuddist religious leaders, this book introduces children to the ideas of forgiveness and reconciliation, and gently shows how God forgives us if we are truly sorry. Ages 3-6. ISBN: 1-59473-142-X.

Spirituality & Health - Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat

You are never too young nor too old to consider the power and importance of forgiveness. Children's emotions explode, they yell at siblings, throw plates of food on the floor, kick toys to the floor, or say things they don't mean, like "I hate you." But moms and dads are there to forgive and model what it means. They don't expect a perfect child and they know what it means to make mistakes themselves. Kids wonder whether God will be so understanding and forgiving. The best we can say is: "No matter what you say or what you ever do, God's loving heart Never closes to you."

You can bank on that! God's love doesn't punish and doesn't blame and is always there to welcome us back. That's a gigantic love that calls us to the work of apologizing and reconciling.

"God's forgiveness is forever no ifs or ands or buts! God forgives every one of us no matter why or when or what!"

August Gold covers the essentials of forgiveness and makes it relevant to those who are ages 3 through 6 years. She is founder and spiritual director of Sacred Center in New York City and the author of the award-winning Where Does God Live? and Does God Hear My Prayers? The photographs in this paperback are by Diane Hardy Waller. Does God Forgive Me? is multicultural, nondenominational, nonsectarian, and endorsed by Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, and Buddhist religious leaders.

Children's Literature
In this dialog between parents and children, children are assured of God's love even if they do something wrong. The words of adults are in large print. The words of children appear as if printed by a child. Parents do not expect perfection because, "Even parents make mistakes," but children are encouraged to say they are sorry and make amends. In spite of bad behavior, from tantrums to stealing, God continues to welcome, love, and forgive. God helps one correct mistakes. The text is in rhymed, four-line verse. Large bright photographs of children show the various emotions involved in wrong doing and its aftermath. A lamb, mother and baby elephant, and a dog running off with a baseball cap stand in for the children in some tight spots. This book will be a helpful discussion starter on the subject. 2006, Skylight Paths Publishing, Ages 3 to 6.
