The part I played was in helping write stories and essays on values that are a free download for anyone who wants them. The stories are a part of the 12 LESSONS FOR GREATNESS, that they want available to help families teach values, and also to encourage families to spend time together reading. The 12 lessons are on optimism; curiosity; patience; imagination; courage; enthusiasm; honesty; a sense of humor; adaptability; idealism; knowledge; and communication.
Yuhu and Hugs are characters with boundless imaginations but who also have to deal with real world challenges like being sick, not getting their way, and being deceived. The essays give parents a way to promote family values; and the stories show how the kids put values into action. And they have fun doing so. The values are not dogmatic or religious -- they are what we need to live better lives and achieve our own personal greatness.
For the stories, I’ve gotten feedback from the children I work with at Bridge Meadows on the adventures of Yuhu and Hugs. From these stories, and the children in my neighborhood, I learn over and over again the beauty of the motto, Play more, be more!
I am working on our last two values. Meanwhile, you can start getting your downloads here:
