When I was young, my mother taught me how to share, be kind to others, and accept all types of people, even if they looked different from myself. It was easy for me because I was a social butterfly. I liked playing with other kids and sharing was no problem. Who wanted to play a game by themselves? When I was 4 years old, my brother came along, and sharing became a bit more difficult! :)
The children’s book, Flightless Goose, by Eric D. Goodman is a fabulous story about an awesome goose named Gilbert who is very much like the other geese of his pond. One day, he has an awful accident, and ends up ice skating instead of flying South for the winter. His friends turn on him because he’s now different, but they soon learn a valuable lesson in friendship. Self esteem, acceptance, and tolerance are all important lessons taught in this book.
IT'S BACK TO SCHOOL TIME and Gilbert the Goose, along with 6 other bloggers, thought it would be an awesome idea to SHARE with one child a bag of goodies that that child can then SHARE with his/her friends. Gilbert gathered up some of his Crayola favorites, an invitation to his Kids Pen Pal Program, an autographed copy of his book, and more---and is giving it all away to one lucky child. The best part? There is enough in the goodie bag for the child to SHARE with old friends and new friends.
So, what’s in the Gilbert the Goose Friendship Goodie Pack? Let’s see:
