Do Unto Otters: A Book About Manners Kindle Edition
"Do not do to others that which would anger you if others did it to you."—Socrates (the Greek philosopher), circa 470-399 B.C.
Mr. Rabbit's new neighbors are Otters. OTTERS! But he doesn't know anything about Otters. Will they get along? Will they be friends? Just treat otters the same way you'd like them to treat you, advises wise Mr. Owl. And so begins Mr. Rabbit's reflection on good manners.
In her smart, quirky style Laurie Keller highlights how to be a good friend and neighbor—just follow the Golden Rule! This title has Common Core connections.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
However, a very talented teacher who read this to her students could very much get the kids to understand the importance of forgiving, forgetting, and moving on.

I shouldn't really be recommending any children's books instead of my own (link above) but I just had to say, this book is great. On the surface you might think the subject matter is a bit dry - a rabbit is worried about his otter neighbours and learns about having good manners and showing consideration to others - but it's definitely one to read and read again.
As well as the main story, each page is packed with little visual jokes and asides - you genuinely do have to go through it a few times to notice everything. The pictures are great, the book has a real sense of humour. You should definitely get this! (and mine too!)
