Accept and Value Each Person

The world is becoming more diverse, and so are the daily lives of our children. Accepting and valuing people and groups who are different from oneself and one's immediate family is a critical social skill. This book introduces diversity and related concepts: respecting differences, being inclusive, and appreciating people just the way they are. Includes questions, activities, and games that reinforce the ideas being taught.

40 pages, Illustrated, Softcover, Full-colour, 23cm x 23cm, Ages 4-8

 

Be Careful and Stay Safe

The world can seem so perilous, especially where our children are concerned. But even very young children can learn basic skills for staying safe in ordinary situations and preparing for emergencies.

 

Without scaring kids (or alarming adults), this book teaches little ones how to avoid potentially dangerous situations, ask for help, follow directions, use things carefully, and plan ahead. Includes questions, activities, and safety games that reinforce the ideas being taught.

40 pages, Illustrated, Softcover, Full-colour, 23cm x 23cm, Ages 4-8

 

Be Honest and Stay Safe

It’s never too soon to learn the difference between what’s true and what isn’t. Words and pictures help young children discover that being honest in words and actions builds trust and self-confidence. They also learn that telling the truth sometimes takes courage and tact. Includes discussion questions, skits, scenarios, and games that reinforce the ideas being taught.

Be Polite and Kind

When children are kind, courteous, and respectful, people enjoy being around them and reciprocate with the same behaviour.

 

This book helps kids understand the importance of showing politeness, speaking kindly, using basic courtesies (“please,” “thank you,” “excuse me”), and respecting the feelings of others.

Scenarios and role-play activities help adults reinforce the book’s lessons.

Join In and Play

It’s fun to make friends and play with others, but it’s not always easy to do.

You have to make an effort, and you have to know the rules—like ask before joining in, take turns, play fair, and be a good sport. This book teaches the basics of cooperation, getting along, making friends, and being a friend. Includes ideas for games adults can use with kids to reinforce the skills being taught.

Know and Follow the Rules

 A child who can’t follow rules is a child who’s always in trouble.

 

This book starts with simple reasons why we have rules: to help us stay safe, learn, be fair, and get along. Then it presents just four basic rules: “Listen,” “Best Work,” “Hands and Body to Myself,” and “Please and Thank You.” The focus throughout is on the positive sense of pride that comes with learning to follow rules. Includes questions and activities adults can use to reinforce the ideas and skills being taught.

Made to be read aloud, this book also includes a special section for adults, with ways to reinforce the skills being taught, questions to invite lively discussion, and listening games to play.

Respect and Take Care of Things

Everything has a place. Things last longer when we take care of them. Respect, responsibility, and stewardship are concepts that even young children can relate to—because they have things they value. This book encourages children to pick up after themselves, put things back where they belong, and ask permission to use things that don’t belong to them. It also teaches simple environmental awareness: respecting and taking care of the earth. Includes ideas for adult-led activities and discussions.

Share and Take Turns

Sharing is a social skill all children need to learn—the sooner the better. Concrete examples and reinforcing illustrations help children practice sharing, understand how and why to share, and realize the benefits of sharing. Includes a note to teachers and parents, additional information for adults, and activities.

40 pages, Illustrated, Softcover, Full-colour, 23cm x 23cm, Ages 4-8

 

Talk and Work It Out

What’s the best way to solve problems between people? By talking them over and working them out. It’s never too soon for children to learn the process of peaceful conflict resolution. This book distills it into clear, simple language and supporting illustrations. Children learn to calm themselves, state the problem, listen, think of solutions, try one, evaluate results, and even agree to disagree when a solution isn’t possible. Includes skill-building games and role plays for adults to use with children.

40 pages, Illustrated, Softcover, Full-colour, 23cm x 23cm, Ages 4-8

 

Try and Stick With It

It’s hard to try new things—for adults as well as children. It’s even harder to stay the course when something is more difficult than we thought it would be, or when things don’t work out the way we hoped. Yet flexibility and perseverance are essential to success in all areas of life, at all ages and stages. This book introduces children to the benefits of trying something new and the basics of stick-to-it-iveness. Includes suggestions adults can use to reinforce the ideas and skills being taught.

40 pages, Illustrated, Softcover, Full-colour, 23cm x 23cm, Ages 4-8

 

Understand and Care

Empathy is key to positive, healthy relationships. This book builds empathy in children.

It guides children to show they care by listening to others and respecting their feelings. Includes questions to discuss and empathy games to play.
