Jade loves playing with her toys. She spends hours playing with them but, somehow, she doesn’t seem to take care of them…
Join Jade and her father and see how, in a creative, gentile and empowering way, Jade understands what responsibility means in regarding her toys.
Asaf Shani is the father of three girls. In the last 15 years, he has worked with thousands of people worldwide to help them improve their conflict management skills. Asaf’s clients often tell him, “If only I would have known these life skills 30 years ago …” and “Why wasn’t I taught this stuff when I was a kid?”
These remarks, usually accompanied with a sigh, were the motivation for Asaf to write “Jade’s Life Skills Series”—a series of books intended to facilitate a discussion between parents and their children about all those latent and vitally important life skills.
Learning Responsibility is the Second book in “Jade’s Life Skills Series.” In this book, the very important subject of responsibility is dealt in a kid friendly way.
A wonderful story with important life lessons.
More often than not children relate themselves with the characters of a good story. In such circumstances, reading fiction can help them to get inspiration from the characters. These stories often portray real life implications through anecdotes, and as such makes it easier for them to understand the complex aspects of life. Moreover, reading these stories at regular intervals can actually help them to develop a positive outlook towards life, which eventually proves beneficial for good character development.
Learning Responsibility or Leaving For Toy Land is a delightful but important book by Asaf Shani. I read it with my grand-kids and they loved not only the story, but also the amazing illustrations by Willie Castro. I thought the text and illustrations worked very well together.
Asaf Shani writes in a wonderfully simple and imaginative style that will guarantee the attention of young minds. If you ever wanted to bond even more with your children or grandchildren, this would be a lovely story to share with them.
It seems to me that this book was created with a lot of love and joy and it’s clear that the author really enjoys creating such wonderful stories. Thank you for sharing with us the gift that you have obviously worked so hard to refine. We’ll be looking forward to seeing what’s coming next. A well-deserved five stars from us.
