Overview

Have you ever known someone who just seemed to have disrespect and trouble follow them? Have you ever had to lead someone with that issue? You're never too young to learn how to handle problem people by using harmony, respect and positive leadership. Children can relate to the contents in this story book, where Michi and Makoto want to help Michi's younger cousin, Damian, get rid of his disrespect and trouble.

Discover the fourth book in a new character-building children's series.

In The Nice, New Karate Kid, Makoto and Michi heavily influence young Damian to do well in karate class. But keeping him under their thumbs is not a fun or positive experience for anyone. Can Michi and Makoto help Damian learn to kick out the Disrespect and Trouble monsters on his own? Will he succeed at bringing in respect and harmony by using his own skills?

This fully-illustrated character-building book includes:

-A glossary of important words to help start the conversation on respect.

-Examples of positive leadership shown by children in the story.

-Weird but not-too-scary monsters embodying negative character traits.

-Concepts clearly presented in kid-friendly text and illustrations.

-Created by a certified children's karate instructor with over 23 years of experience.

Character is POWER!

Help the children in your life promote the character traits of respect and harmony: buy this book today.
