This inspiring fable tells the story of two friends, Rabbit and Monkey, who have a tradition of embarking on a different adventure every year. This year, they both decide to set off on a rather challenging adventure, even more challenging than their last.
They both agreed that they will take a journey through the desert to the amazing oasis. However, on their way, they experience some difficulties that puts their friendship to the test.
Join the friends on their trek through the desert to the amazing oasis and discover the true meaning of friendship and the value of forgiveness along the way.
Teaching your child to forgive is an essential tool in life that will make the transition from childhood to adolescence easier.
Holding onto anger and resentment is a recipe for anxiety and depression for both children and adults. The earlier forgiveness is taught, the earlier you can prevent children from undertaking the role of the victim. That in turn helps to prevent anxiety and depression.
The lesson of this book is best expressed in this inspirational quote:
“When someone hurts us, we should write it down in sand, where the winds of forgiveness can erase it; but when someone does something good for us, we must carve it in stone, so no wind can ever erase it.”
Friends through Sand and Stone is a valuable little children’s book about friendships. As I read it to a young girl that I was babysitting, it caused me to reflect on my own friendships and the importance of forgiveness.
This is a beautiful little story about friendship and bonding and consideration and forgiveness - some of the many elements that build a solid friendship. Once again hats off to A. M. Marcus
