I often wonder how much preschoolers are able to understand from a social and emotional standpoint. And time and time again I'm amazed by a young child's capacity to learn and comprehend. A new series of books, Alphabet Kids (manufacturer's site) created by Patrice Samara and Allegra Joyce Kassin, focuses on six children from different cultures. Through the stories, preschoolers learn not only about different ways of life, but tolerance as well.
With bullying still a major problems in school (yes, preschool too) the books do a great job of exploring and celebrating diversity. The text is easy-to-understand yet powerful and the art colorful and bright with lots of visual appeal.
A set of six books and a tote costs $12. Every time a set is sold, a book is donated to a needy child.
Do you talk about diversity and tolerance with your preschooler?
