When I’m Shining with LOVE
Helping children make good choices in social situations by teaching LOVE.
‘When I’m shining with LOVE’ explores diversity amongst people. As we are all unique, we seek to teach children about celebrating differences. LOVE in action is putting others before self. This is an important skill for children when learning about living within a family or in community. When we LOVE first, it typically comes back to us, fulfilling our distinctive human need to be loved and accepted!
The ‘Shining with Light’ series:
This series has been written for young children (ages 3+) in a way that captures a child’s sense of wonder and learning, encapsulated in fun rhyme and story telling. The stories develop life skills such as friendship and social skills that children can relate to and put into practice in their everyday lives and experiences.
In this series our helper-light is depicted through a star on the chest of our friend Stellar Bear. ‘Stellar’ means constellation or star. Stars shine with light and are unique just as we are unique. When we turn on our light our true qualities can shine through. The star reflects the emotions of Stellar, and whispers trusting and true solutions when things go wrong. The star is our companion, our problem solver, our helper to make things right.
