I’m Kiko. I’m a happy camper! I can grow grateful, too. Let me show you how. My class goes on lots of field trips. Ms. Cooper has taken us to the art museum, the state capitol, and even to a bakery, but never camping. I was excited! I counted the days until we left! Kiko goes on a camping trip with her class and learns about gratitude! Throughout the trip, Kiko discovers different things she appreciates about her family, friends, and opportunities. This story is based on the “theory of mind,” which is the ability to take the perspective of others and recognize that each person has their own thoughts, feelings, and perspectives. Growing gratitude leads to greater happiness and stronger interpersonal relationships. Also included is a Reader's Note that provides contextual advice, healthy-mind tips, and more ways for growing gratitude in kids.

Rating: Review: Children's nonfiction that focuses on an objective, or moral. The focus is learning about gratitude and understanding other people and how they feel. In one section, the student becomes nervous from climbing and she notices that her classmate Camille is nervous, too. She recognizes the emotion in someone else and works to comfort her classmate. In another part, Moseah asks about what grateful means and someone defines it directly -- so there is no guessing games a s to what the objective is of this book. It's colorful and kid-focused students would enjoy listening to this or looking at the pictures. Downloaded from netgalley in exchange ...free book/free review..
