You can do it SquirrelDren or for early exposure to a second languageSuirrel and Elephant are best friends One day when Suirrel sees delicious nuts high up in a tree she is scared to climb. 35 starsThis is a book about helping someone the right way of helping to be precise It is a story for young children to enjoy and for adults and children alike to take to heart 1 EmpoweringSuirrel and Elephant are walking next to each other through the woods when Suirrel discovers some nuts in a tree But Suirrel is too scared to climb the tree and asks Elephant for help Elephant thought about it If he helped suirrel she would be happy and it was easy for him to lift her up into the tree But if he did she would never learn to climb a tree and what if she ever needed to climb one when he wasn't around Instead of just lifting her up he decides to build up Suirrel's confidence by encouraging her and by pointing out her physical features which are perfect for climbing I really like that he not only tells her to be brave but also gives her a rational explanation as to why she has good reason to trust in her abilities2 Dealing with FailureSo Suirrel gives it a go but gets scared again when she sees how high she has already climbed Here Elephant steadies her with his trunk but only for as long as she needs it She reaches the nuts and in her excitement loses her balance and falls But Elephant catches her of course He has some encouraging words for her and also formulates a learning goal for next time climbing down the tree Here I appreciate that Elephant and Suirrel don't focus on falling which could eual failure for self critical kids but on Suirrel's courage And even better they don't just celebrate her achievement but point out that further practice will lead to growth3 BondingAfter this exciting and exhausting experience they head home with Suirrel sitting comfortably on Elephant's back I like this little detail because it shows that supporting others in a learning experience is a way of bonding and establishing trustAnd the moral of this story 1 The right way to help someone is by empowering and encouraging them instead of doing the work for them2 The right balance between granting autonomy and providing protection creates the potential for bonding and trust3 When failure occurs it is good to focus on your achievement and to keep trying aiming even higher next timeI think this book offers some great advice for parents caregivers and educators as well as NGOs and people who work in developmentI probably should have given it a higher rating but to me it just didn't feel like much of a story The message is great the pictures are adorable but the story is very predictable and lacking in dialogue So I think older kids would find it boring and it's not one of those books that I wouldn't mind reading to my kids over and over again I guess my problem is that I love suirrels and the illustrations are so cute that I was hoping for something like Einhörnchen I liked it but I didn't love itThank you NetGalley and BooksGoSocial for a free copy of this book in exchange in for an honest review
