Everyone has a Point of View:
A foundational book for teaching empathy & understanding
EVERYONE HAS A POINT OF VIEW
"Everyone has a point of view...and to itself, each one is true."
Big Ideas for Young Minds: Though written simply for early reader accessibility, the book's theme is a leap towards higher-level, abstract understanding of the value inherent in every living being. "Thinking Ladder" questions and activities, informed by Benjamin Bloom's Taxonomy of Learning, challenge and expand young minds to consider others' perspectives in light of their own.
This simple, whimsically illustrated poetic journey takes us across cultures, ages, and places--connecting people, animals, and even aspects of nature as a web of unique experience, each worthwhile in its subjectivity, whether or not we understand or agree with it.
Whether for bed time, story time, or class time, Everyone has a Point of View is a book meant to help set young minds on a course towards bridging the gap between the "me" and the "other."
CURRENT PROJECT (sequel): Everyone Shares the Same Address
This book shows how, despite our seeming distance from one another (be in physical or social/experiential), we all share the same planet. Therefore, when we care for one place we are essentially caring for the entire world.
