Join Little Critter® as he learns forgiving not only helps others—it makes him feel better too!
Since 1975, Mercer Mayer has been writing and illustrating stories about Little Critter® and the antics he stumbles into while growing up. Tommy Nelson is thrilled to bring this beloved brand to the Christian market with the Inspired Kids line of faith-based books featuring Little Critter.
In We All Need Forgiveness, Little Critter is glad he has such nice friends who forgive him when he makes mistakes. But when one of his friends accidentally does something that affects him, Little Critter gets upset and stays angry at his friend for a while. But Little Critter’s pals teach him that saying “it’s okay” helps the person who acted up—and it helps him feel better much sooner.
Just like Mama says, “As God forgives, we must forgive each other.” Based on Matthew 6:14, Little Critter learns why forgiveness helps heal the one who does the forgiving just as much as the one who needs forgiveness.

Forgiveness is something that we all expect when we do something wrong, whether intentionally or not. But forgiving someone else when they have done something to us is not so easy. As adults, and especially Christians, we know that we are required to forgive. Colossians 3:13 says, "Forgive each other because the Lord forgave you." Little Critter is all out of sorts because his friends and even some of his family have done things that have made him downright mad. The last thing he wants to do is forgive them. But of course the tables are eventually turned and he is in need of forgiveness. Things definitely look different from that perspective. Mercer Mayer has once again used the delightful animals in his Little Critter's series to help you teach your child a valuable life lesson. Come along with Little Critter and his friends as they explore giving and receiving forgiveness. The book is a great jumping off point for discussions on why we should forgive and how we should go about seeking forgiveness. I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
