This illustrated storybook introduces Coco, Otto, Ollie and Ling as they negotiate the sometimes tricky world of friendships and relationships, observing the unkindness of some and using their superpower – kindness – to change the lives of others. Explore with them what it means to be unkind, why that choice is sometimes made and how usually there is another choice – to be kind.
This storybook will:
- Help facilitate discussions with children about values, morals and empathy
- Support children to see that kindness can be a cool choice to make
- Help you to introduce children to the notion that kindness and unkindness are choices
This storybook is available to purchase as part of a two-component set, Negotiating the World of Friendships and Relationships: A ‘Cool to be Kind’ Storybook and Practical Resource. It can be used by teachers and support staff to teach and promote kindness to children at primary age and beyond.
