Books That Teach Caring




Every month, I host a linky party for bloggers to post their ideas on teaching character. It’s a great resource for parents, teachers and any other caregivers that work with children to refer back to.

This month we are talking about Caring. I think books are a wonderful way to teach children about a certain concept in a fun, sometimes indirect way. So here are some of the books I use to teach my children at home and at school about Caring.

Am I missing a great children’s book that teaches Caring? Please let me know in the comments below!
