What does it mean to have integrity? How does one develop strong character? Why is it important to take responsibility and to empathize?

These important life questions and others are answered in Chicken Soup for the Child’s Soul: Character Building Stories to Read With Kids Ages 5-8 from the acclaimed, long-running Chicken Soup for the Soul series.

This value-based collection of empowering stories, confidently narrated with down-to-earth clarity by Leslie Bellair, will guide young children through the everyday obstacles and social challenges that come with growing up.

Summary

Today's children live in a world filled with adventure, mental stimulation, topical issues, and personal challenges. The values they learn now, between the ages of 5 and 8, will shape the rest of their lives. Through this collection of heartfelt true stories about family ties, helping neighbors, and lasting friendships, children will see how other kids their age have learned valuable lessons from the choices they've made - and most of all, they will realize that they are not alone in dealing with some of the difficult issues in their lives; such as the loss of a loved one, accepting and respecting others, taking responsibility for their actions, coping with fitting in, or learning to make friends.

Chicken Soup for the Child's Soul is a book that can help guide children as they explore their relationships with peers and family members, and begin to develop their own personal values. You and your children will share special times reading these real-life stories to each other, as together you explore how other children have dealt with everyday issues in healthy, positive ways. Listening to Child's Soul stories together can serve as an entrance to conversations about the topics of the stories, which can create better family and classroom communication during these exciting years of growth.
