Can I Tell You About Gratitude?
Jessica Kingsley Publishers
Meet Maya. Maya always tries to be polite, and to remember to say “please” and “thank you.” But she wants to learn what it means to truly be grateful. Should she be grateful to her teachers for their hard work? It is their job after all. What about the cafeteria lady when she serves lasagna? After all, she probably doesn’t even know it’s Maya’s favourite! This illustrated book is the ideal conversation starter for children aged seven and up to get them to understand what gratitude means, and to help them develop their own ability to be genuinely grateful. It contains a useful list of recommended reading and additional resources for teachers.
