With wonderful illustrations this book explains how best to take care of others possessions and your own. Helps a child relate well with their peers and improve relationships. Also contains great tips and ideas on making these changes.
Great book about taking care of things.
The whole "Learning to Get Along" series is written for use with young students. Even preschoolers and kindergartners can understand the illustrations and simply stated text. Great for beginning of the year lessons on taking care of school materials or leaving other students' belongings alone.
This is a good book to help young children learn how to respect things and to take care of them. My friend is a first grade teacher and bought this book to read-aloud to her class to help the children understand that it is important to take care of things.
