It is important that children be respectful of oneself, others, and the environment. This engaging book, by Kathy Fields, provides age-appropriate examples that reinforce social and emotional skills for children while illustrating all of the ways they can be honest, kind, and trustworthy citizens of the world. Parents, educators, and counselors are encouraged to use the examples to support instruction and to generate meaningful conversations that will spark positive change. Each page is a mini character lesson. Intentionally, the Very Best Me! is a delightful book with a valuable message.
