Wee Are the World: Because of You

Taking your child to volunteer is just about the best way for them to learn about giving back, but Because of You will certainly teach them the concept too.

This gem of a book, written by B.G. Hennessy and illustrated by Hiroe Nakata, has a simple yet delightful way of showing children the joys of being kind, sharing, and helping others. The drawings and elementary texts make it a family favorite.

It reads:

"Because of you, there is one more person who needs help
and one more person who can help others"

With lines like those, your lil one will want to lend a helping hand or sympathetic ear to people around them. And, at $11 a book, you're getting a bargain for a priceless lesson.

I love this!

Lovely way to reinforce this important value and open dialogue to possibly find out with what your child might want to get involved!!! I discovered that my 4 year old son has very strong feelings about ways he wants to give back so involving him in the whole process has been a great experience (and certainly a learning experience for me!!)

What a great find, but lets not forget to keep teaching by example.
