With lots of humor and clear language about forgiveness, this lovely picture book is full of reminders not to always take others' actions personally. It also helps to understand that if someone hurts your feelings it isn't always intentional. The Sour Grape encourages readers to give others the benefit of the doubt and recognize that everyone makes mistakes. Using funny, clear examples, the fruits on these pages teach adults and children alike that life is happier, better, and more fun when we extend empathy to others.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
