7 Times for Forgiveness and 1 For My Bestest Behavior

Young Sasha was so excited about her new baby brother, Caleb. She told everyone how much she looked forward to being a big sister.


Though she had always been on her bestest behavior, everything in Sasha's world seemed to change once he arrived home.


This beautiful story so resonated with our family. My eldest daughter was so uncertain of her place in the the family when her baby sister joined our family. Author Trent has once again captured the sweet spirit of a child in question, with a loving family there to provide answers

"This book was a treasure to me as a father of color. There are not enough children stories that feature families of color, where the principal relationship that is explored is that of a young daughter and her father. Much like her first book, If Tomorrow Comes and I Am Gone , we are able to use Trent's book to reassure our children of fears that we are not always sure how to talk about as parents."

"If Tomorrow Comes and I Am Gone" and "7 Times for Forgiveness and 1 For My Bestest Behavior," clearly demonstrate that Jordan Trent has mastered the voice of children in a most endearing way. Sasha's story is a reminder to all parents why our 'bestest behavior' will help our children thrive.
