Liam and his dad are building a fort to share with his neighborhood friends. When Liam gets his feelings hurt, he becomes angry and makes changes to the fort that exclude others. Holding a grudge only hurts himself, as he becomes isolated and lonely. Can Liam conquer his grudge and find freedom in forgiveness? Learn with Liam how Forgiveness, Open communication, Reconciliation, and Trust build a strong foundation for a true friendship FORT

Childhood friendships can be full of challenges, social pressure, and both intentional and unintentional hurts. Readers will learn with Liam how to recognize when they are holding a grudge and understand the impact of the hurt on their friendships and themselves. Forgiveness is not just a response to an apology, but rather a personal decision to let go of past hurts and move forward with good will. Children will learn that small arguments are a normal experience in friendships, and they will gain skills to restore friendships and rebuild trust over time. Consideration is also given to ceasing unsafe relationships even when forgiveness has taken place.

This book showcases diversity in positive ways with characters that span various cultures, ethnicities, family situations, physical challenges and more. Readers of all backgrounds will see themselves in these pages while learning to value the diversity within their own community and being exposed to differences from around the world.
