Teaching children to respect themselves, other people and the world around them is crucial. Children learn about respect continuously from others actions around them. It is important for parents and teachers to model a respectful attitude for children to learn from. Using picture books is a great way to teach respecting ourselves, accepting differences, using respectful words and respecting the environment. This collection of books demonstrate respectful behaviour. They will also help children look at situations from the perspective of others. They can begin to put themselves in the shoes of others.
