Our customer reviews

What do children see when they watch the news? They learn about bad deeds by people who shoot others in a crowded theater or a public school. It could almost make them wonder if there are any good people left! Yet, we know that there are many good people like carpenters who build the houses in which we live, farmers who grow and cooks who make the food we eat, doctors and midwives who deliver babies, teachers, musicians, and millions and millions of others who help us in various ways by doing very good things, including our moms, dads, sisters, and brothers. What good things can you and I do to help someone else? It is important for children to be reminded that there are still caring people in their world. Author Lynea Gillen, who was a school teacher and counselor for over thirty years and is now in private practice, tells a gentle, soothing story, illustrated with warm, full-color images by Kristina Swarner, that will help to ease youngsters' fears and develop a sense of gratitude. In the back there are two bonus activities that teachers, parents, counselors, and therapists can use to reinforce and extend the learning into daily life by giving children an opportunity to practice the skills that will enable them to grow into thankful and giving people. Good People Everywhere will encourage children to recognize the good people in their lives and would make an excellent bedtime story.show more
