Universell gültige Werte wie Respekt, Hilfsbereitschaft oder Gerechtigkeit bilden das Fundament unseres Zusammenlebens. Gerade in der heutigen Zeit, in der wir uns oft mit Ängsten und Unsicherheiten konfrontiert sehen, kann uns das Besinnen auf grundlegende Werte und Tugenden Unterstützung bieten und Orientierung geben. Eine wertebasierte Erziehung unserer Kinder ist deshalb auch für ihre Persönlichkeitsbildung von großer Bedeutung. So schnelllebig die heutige Zeit auch ist, bestimmte Werte und Tugenden sind und bleiben zeitlos. Genauso zeitlos wie die Märchen der Brüder Grimm, die Kinder schon seit hunderten von Jahren faszinieren. Erstmals gibt es nun ein Hörbuch, in dem ausgewählte Grimms Märchen am Beispiel wichtiger Werte und Tugenden für Kinder psychologisch aufbereitet werden. Autorin Mag. Dr. Beate Guldenschuh-Fessler, Diplom Psychologin, Verhaltens- und Lehrtherapeutin legt bei jedem der elf Märchen den Fokus auf eine andere wichtige Tugend, die für die Persönlichkeitsentwicklung von Kindern von grundlegender Bedeutung ist. Jedem gesprochenen Märchentext folgt eine Beschreibung der Tugend oder des Wertes, die die Protagonisten im Märchen verkörpern. Zu den elf Märchen gibt es zudem elf Ausmalbilder, die über das beigefügte PDF downloadbar sind. Die maximal 10 Minuten Vorlesezeit pro Märchen orientieren sich an der oft kurzen Aufmerksamkeitsspanne bei Kindern und ermöglichen, den Fokus auf die jeweilige Tugend zu lenken. Nutzen Sie die faszinierende Welt der Grimms Märchen und vermitteln Sie Ihren Kindern Werte, die im Leben eines jeden Menschen – insbesondere in der heutigen Zeit – von besonderer Bedeutung sind!Show more
