Accept and Value Each Person: Accepting and valuing people and groups who are different from oneself and one's immediate family are critical social skills. This book introduces diversity and related character education concepts: respecting differences, being inclusive, and appreciating people just the way they are.
Be Careful and Be Safe: Teaches basic skills for staying safe in ordinary situations and preparing for emergencies, including how to avoid potentially dangerous situations, ask for help, follow directions, use things carefully, and plan ahead.
Be Honest and Tell the Truth: 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.
Be Polite and Kind: When children are kind, courteous, and respectful, people enjoy being around them and reciprocate with the same behavior. Teaches manners by helping kids understand the importance of showing politeness, speaking kindly, using basic courtesies (“please,” “thank you,” “excuse me”), and respecting the feelings of others.
Cool Down and Work Through Anger: Helps children learn to behave responsibly toward themselves and others as they develop skills of anger management. Reassuring and supportive, the book helps children see that when they cool down and work through anger, they can feel peaceful again.
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 social skills for children using the basics of cooperation, getting along, making friends, and being a friend.
Know and Follow the Rules: 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.
Listen and Learn: Knowing how to listen is essential to learning, growing, and getting along with others. Simple words and inviting illustrations help children develop listening skills, understand why it’s important to listen, and recognize the positive results of listening.
Reach out and Give: Children can participate in service learning projects to help make the world a better place. This book begins with the concept of gratitude, because feeling grateful is a powerful motivator. Words and pictures show children contributing to their community in simple yet meaningful ways.
Respect and Take Care of Things: Showing respect, responsibility, and stewardship are social skills 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.
Share and Take Turns: Sharing is a social skill all children need to learn. Concrete examples and reinforcing illustrations help children practice sharing, understand how and why to share, and realize the benefits of sharing
Talk and Work It 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.
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.
Understand and Care: Empathy is key to positive, healthy relationships. This book builds empathy in children. In clear, child-friendly words and illustrations, it helps them to 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.
When I Feel Afraid: Children today have many fears, both real and imagined. Encouraging words and supportive illustrations guide children to face their fears and know where to turn for help. Little ones also learn simple ways to help themselves. Includes a special section for adults, with ideas for supporting children when they feel afraid and a list of additional resources.
