Help preschoolers develop compassion for others with this collection of classroom and at-home activities. These simple but powerful lessons help children practice loving values as they contribute to a supportive learning environment--a place where all children seek out the goodness in themselves and others.

The Kindness Curriculum, Second Edition, provides a variety of new and revised experiences that strengthen the building blocks of positive character development. Children will enjoy the expression the activities encourage and the playfulness they provide as they learn about love, feelings and empathy, gentleness, self-control, respect, friendship, and conflict resolution. This edition includes activities that aim to prevent bullying before it starts by teaching young children about pro-social values in a peaceful classroom community.

This comprehensive collection of activities helps foster an atmosphere of acceptance, empowerment, and love. It also supports the important lesson that a little kindness can go a long way.
