As parents, creating a statement of the values we want to teach our children can be very powerful. Even with little ones, we can impart simple foundational messages such as “be kind” and “be fair” to ourselves and to each other. When we lovingly offer the space for kids to explore who they are, to have empathy and compassion and be open to those similar as well as different from us, we move towards a future that looks brighter than today.
Sharing and talking about these values with children will open the door to ongoing discussions. Browse today’s virtual bookshelves with Diversity and Kindness reading for children in Preschool – Grade 8. Click a book cover to link to the title in the online catalog, and instantly <Place a Hold>.
