This full-color, illustrated story on forgiveness is clever, fun, and has a great story line about a girl who can’t find her jump rope and accuses several people of taking it. For ages 4-6 from MOPS.
Maddie’s jump rope is missing. When she doesn’t find it in all the usual places, she gets angry. She blames each member of her family in turn. Through familiar rhyme and repetition, simple text, and delightful illustrations, this level-one I Can Read Book provides support for the earliest readers
I bought this when it really on sale for Kindle. there were some pretty negative reviews about the end of the book where she just stops and asks forgiveness and isn’t chastised or punished just told to pray. however I think it was done pretty well. it us not an introduction to faith but it is a good lesson in active faith and behavior. I think it is a pretty you’d early reader.
who me? not me. then who? LOL
