(After all, the tree has been watching over this playground for a long time.) Before the girl can turn one hurtful act into two, the tree shows her how to be bigger than her hurt feelings, and to treat others with respect. Through captivating illustrations and some chuckles, Be Bigger helps children to work through their emotions and to see a positive, respectful way of working out disagreements. The tree uses ages-old wisdom and loving encouragement to teach us how to do the right thing in our friendships, even when its hard. Part of the Talking with Trees series, Be Bigger is written for children grades K-4. Supersize pictures engage children emotionally while the included discussion guide encourages them to talk through their own experiences. Written by a mom of four from real-life experiences, Talking with Trees books present situations kids can relate to, and communicate complex ideas about character in terms kids can understand.
