- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after January 21, 2021
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 book 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, that can be used by teachers and support staff to teach and promote kindness to primary aged children.
