Children growing up today face differences of age, culture, language, heritage, lifestyle, religion and physical ability at every turn. But without guidance, they tend to deal with differences by dividing up into in-groups and out-groups-resulting in exclusion, violence and bullying.
Connecting Kids helps children explore and celebrate differences, building acceptance and an inclusive culture that prevents and reduces prejudice and discrimination. Focusing on 20 key skills, it includes over 200 fun games and activities that teach social, "connecting" behaviors. Well-illustrated, the book also includes "case study" stories and artwork from around the world for each skill, a complete cross-referenced index, and further resources.
