We Can Get Along uses clear words and charming illustrations to teach tolerance and encourage kindness, showing children that they have the power to make good choices. It explores simple yet essential skills that little ones can use for conflict resolution and peacemaking--think before you speak or act, treat everyone the way you want to be treated, ask an adult for help when you need it. Share this warm and friendly book with children to show them that we all play a part in getting along, and that when we do, everyone feels happier.
Includes activity and discussion guide for adults.
