Then, we did a review game to remind us about the lessons we learned from the eight project cornerstone books we read this year. There were prizes for everyone.
Ask your child to tell you which book was his or her favorite and why. These books all have great messages about being an upstander. Simon’s Hook is my personal favorite because it teaches children techniques for dealing with teasing and taunting. Check out some of these books at the library. Read them with your child to help reinforce the message. When you work with your child on these important social skills you are helping him or her build confidence and become a problem solver.
