Understand and Care
Empathy is key to positive, healthy relationships. In clear, child-friendly words and illustrations, this book helps children understand that other people have feelings like theirs--and different from theirs. It guides children to show they care by listening to others and respecting their feelings. Includes questions to discuss and empathy games to play.
As a mom, I often felt like all I did was tell my children “no” or “stop that,” always focusing on the negative. Looking back, I wonder if the constant barrage of “no” went unheeded because I neglected to provide proactive instruction about right behavior. I love this series because it teaches respect and responsibility in a gentle yet, thought-provoking way. Each straightforward book is written in a manner young child can understand, enjoyable graphics and an activity guide for parents to reinforce lessons. No Christian content; common moral standards are taught. 35 pgs, sc. Part of the Simply Classical Myself and Others curriculum. ~ Deanne
