Be the Difference: 40+ ideas for kids to create positive change using empathy, kindness, equality and environmental awareness
By Jayneen Sanders
This engaging book provides over 40 powerful ideas on how children and the people who love them can make a difference. Using children-friendly text and beautiful illustrations, the focus is on three key areas: empathy and kindness, racial and gender equality, and caring for the environment. We know from research that ‘doing good is good for you’. The participant benefits both mentally and physically.
Encouraging a mindset of giving and being part of positive change when a child is young, benefits both the child and their future. The aim of this book is to introduce children to the many positive things they can do, both personally and collectively to make this world a kinder and more caring place. This book can be read over a number of sessions by children or to children by parents and caregivers, or integrated into a classroom setting. There are also further discussion questions/ideas included at the back of the book.
