Teaching ways for a child to learn to understand someone else. The writing and pictures make it feel like preschool, even though the pictures portray some school situations. I suppose would work with Kindergarten, but best one-on-one than in a group.
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. This title is good for covering simple manners and kindness to others.
a simple book to show children how easy it is to understand and care when our friends are feeling certain ways. shows how children can think back and reflect on when they felt that way and when they wanted someone to care. great book. uses other races as characters.
