Responsibility

Story Summary

Picnic by the river is a story about recognizing our responsibility towards the environment and the earth we live on. After a delicious Sunday picnic with the family, your child takes the initiative to clean the picnic area of any litter that was left behind and inspires the other children around who come to join in cleaning up.

The Lesson

By being responsible and following their instinct to clean up the natural environment, children learn the power of functioning independently and the impact they can have on inspiring others so it fosters their autonomy as an individual. Taking leadership initiative also contributes to a child's self-esteem. They learn how to handle certain behaviors on their own, promoting a positive self-image that influences and encourages their peers to follow suit.
