Being made fun of is something all children go through. Some don't mind it but others are deeply affected by it. We want to teach children at a young age that friends should not be the first to laugh at others, rather, the should be the first to help. This story shows the difference between choosing to be a quiet bystander and choosing to be a true friend who speaks up and does the right thing.
This storybooks aims to promote social emotional learning (SEL) by integrating the five core competencies as identified by The Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL): Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, Relationship Skills, Responsible Decision-Making
ALEXINE: This is a very important lesson that we want Adriana to always remember. She's experienced this firsthand and I'm so happy that now we have this book to always remind her.
ADRIANA: I'm going to share this book with all my playmates so they won't make fun of our other friends anymore. My favorite part is the ice cream!
