Help children develop the attitudes and skills of courage and assertiveness in order to make wise choices and work through challenges. Children learn to do what they think is right and be brave, even if it’s hard. They learn to distinguish between expectations set by trusted adults and hurtful, wrong, or dangerous things adults or children might pressure them to do. The book also highlights trying new things, taking reasonable risks, and speaking up.
Being the Best Me!® Series
From the author of the popular Learning to Get Along® books comes a one-of-a-kind character-development series. Each of the first six books in the Being the Best Me! series helps children learn, understand, and develop attitudes and positive character traits that strengthen self-confidence and a sense of purpose. Each book focuses on a specific attitude or character trait—optimism, self-esteem, assertiveness, resilience, integrity, and forgiveness. Also included are discussion questions, games, activities, and additional information for adults. Filled with diversity, these social story books will be welcome in school, home, and childcare settings.
Praise for the series
“More than ever before, children today need a foundation of strong emotional skills to guide their choices in life. These books focus on positive thinking and assertive, kind behavior that can bolster children’s mental health, their relationships, and their performance in school. An exciting tool for empowering children to live their best lives.”—Sean Covey, best-selling author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens and The 7 Habits of Happy Kids
“As Meiners’s previous series, Learning to Get Along, has shown, there’s a ready audience for simple picture books that communicate values to young children.”—Booklist
“These books are simply written and will empower students to turn around bad days. Affirming statements . . . are accompanied by large, cheerful, illustrations that are perfect for prompting discussion about how the scene reflects the writing and whether similar examples can be found in students’ lives. The books conclude with numerous questions parents and teachers can ask to encourage additional reflection as well as worthwhile hands-on activities to further emphasize positive thinking and foster self-confidence.”—School Library Journal
“Easy reads with child-friendly illustrations and easy-to-understand examples of real-life situations.”—Skipping Stones: A Multicultural Children’s Magazine
