This series of warm, insightful essays illustrates how to instill values through example and how parenting choices and communication styles affect young children.

Based on the observations in the classic poem, each chapter relates to a verse: “If children live with sharing, they learn generosity” covers how a young child adjusts to a new baby, how we share our own time with children, and how we share with those who have less.

Text is accompanied by developmental facts and anecdotes. A very approachable, satisfying book about instilling values through example. By Dorothy Law Nolte and Rachel Harris. Paperback, 224 pages. All ages.
