Why Should I?

Why Should I?

A book about respect


Available February 2019. Arin acts careless and rude—and other people are angry and upset. His parents and teacher tell him he needs to show respect. Confused and unhappy, Arin asks Grandma for help. They talk about how he would feel if someone broke his things or laughed at what he likes. Arin makes an effort to show respect to others and learns that everyone treats him better when he does.

A special section for adults suggests discussion questions and ideas for guiding children to talk about their feelings.
