Book Description: Self-esteem, tolerance, good values – these are gifts that will last children a lifetime and help them become successful adults. These stories, great for kids to discuss with parents and teachers, help them be the best they can be.
This collection shows kids positive role models to follow in its stories about making good choices, having confidence, and doing the right thing. Parents and grandparents will enjoy discussing the stories with children, making it a family event. Great for teachers to share with students, too.
This book harnesses the power of storytelling to inspire and teach kids, while also entertaining them. Key issues such as bullying, tolerance, and values are addressed in stories selected from Chicken Soup for the Soul’s vast library and represent the best on these topics from the company’s 22-year history.
This book is a joint project of Chicken Soup for the Soul and The Boniuk Foundation, which are working together to promote tolerance, respect, and compassion, inspiring young people and adults to embrace their differences, reject stereotypes, and make good choices.
It’s about time we started to provide good role models for our middle school age kids, giving them someone positive to emulate. This is a difficult age where kids find pressure all around them as they form their personalities. This book contains over 100 stories either written by the children/teens or told to adults who wrote them giving positive role models. The chapters are diverse, ensuring that there is something for everyone. I highly recommend this for teachers to have in their classroom and parents to share with their kids.
