Very young children are egocentric. They think the world revolves around them and that everyone and everything is nothing but an extension of them. As they learn that they are separate from everyone and everything else, fears can develop. As early childhood educators we need to show them that they are unique individuals who have something very special to offer everyone and everything else. This book provides activities to help children in your classroom come to know themselves and accept themselves as valuable human beings.
Part 1: Let's Learn to Know the Magnificent Me provides activities that examine each child as a physical being with feelings.
Part 2: Let's Learn to be Happy About the Magnificent Me provides activities that help the young child learn about his abilities and limitations and to be content to be a growing person.
