Why do I always have to say please and thank you? Respect is the answer, according to Kind Kendra.
Children's Literature - Kimberly O'MearaWhen teachers or other adults talk to students about their behavior, a common word used is respect. Respect is a word that represents an abstract idea that is less than understood by most students. This "Kids Talk Jr." book attempts to deal with teaching the concept of respect to young children. Kendra, a fifth grade student and the narrator, reads letters from her peers asking specific questions about respect. From cleaning the environment to saying please and thank you, this book helps children understand how issues of respect influence the way they feel about themselves and others. The handy respect quiz in the back of the text offers teachers an excellent way to test their students reading comprehension and generalization skills. Also featured in the back of the text is a real life portrait of Gaylord Nelson, the man who created Earth Day, an annual world wide celebration about respecting our earth.
