The Giving Book: Open the Door to a Lifetime of Giving, by Ellen Sabin, inspires, engages and teaches children about the act of giving back. It provides a process to help families guide their children in gaining a sense of compassion, exploring their own personal interests in helping others, and discovering the true impact they can have in the lives of others, their community and the world. The 64-page, spiral-bound workbook will be personalized by your child, making him the author of his own journey into compassion and giving.
What we like about it
The Giving Book outlines a number of giving-related topics in a SIMPLE and FUN way, hitting on great explanations of what giving and charity are, how to help your children become aware of and empathetic to the needs of others, how and why we should help others, and basic money savings activities, to name a few.
The interactive layout of the book offers colorful illustrations, activities and exercises that lead children through entertaining and meaningful lessons in giving and provide opportunities for personal reflection through a journal and scrap book (we love a giving scrap book).
Further, through active participation in thought-provoking activities, this book engages children in giving, as opposed to just telling them about it. The application of these lessons through experience makes for a highly impactful and memorable experience.
About the Author
Ellen Sabin is an award-winning author of children’s books. The Giving Book was originally hand-created for her niece to help her learn about the joy of giving and the power she had to make a difference. Others heard about the book and after receiving overwhelming request from parents, educators and parenting specialists for copies, she decided to publish what then became The Giving Book. Since then, she has developed other books aimed to inspire children as they grow into their roles as healthy, kind, confident and caring adults.
Perfect for young readers, ages six to 11. We highly recommend that parents guide their
children through this book, regardless of their age, to help them get the most out of the experience.
