Everybody Matters Respect for Others by Pat Thomas


Everybody Matters Respect for Others by Pat Thomas

This delightful picture book introduces children to the concept of respect. Everyone deserves respect, whether it is by being treated fairly or by not being discriminated against because they are different. This book shows how you can earn respect, by being polite, honest or listening to others. Young readers will also discover how having respect for ourselves and others makes the world a nicer place to be in. Discussion boxes offer an adult opportunities to discuss the issues directly with their child audience. Charmingly clear illustrations give readers immediate access to complex situations and feelings and provide further stimulus for discussion. Notes for teachers and parents, plus suggested further resources, help adults to make the most of the learning opportunities inherent in the book.
