This introduction to service projects uses picture books to familiarize students with what children can do to help others. The narrative style, selective vocabulary, and real world setting help students understand the impact that kindness can have on others.
The packet includes information on using the picture book strategy, a guide for selecting appropriate picture books, and two suggested books to use to introduce service projects. There is a brief synopsis of each book included to help teachers in the selection of the books.
