    1. This is an older story, but I think students will still enjoy it. I was previewing it for my Letter E for elephants week with PreK, but it is just too long for a read aloud. I will probably move this to my beginning chapter book area. It's not exactly a chapter book but it is longer than most picture books.

The Elephant Who Couldn't Forget, orCover Small Offenses in Love, orHow to Be Free From Bitterness.Good stuff here for helping kids see how to apply forgiveness in the little things.Just don't get preachy about it and explain the story until it's useless and boring! Let it speak for itself. Unless the kid has questions- then answer them, of course!
