The Giving Book: Open the Door to a Lifetime of Giving (Spiral)
The Giving Book: Open the Door to a Lifetime of Giving is a gift book for children ages 6 to 11 - inspiring, teaching and engaging them to give back to the world as it teaches them the joys of community, charity, and volunteering. It is a unique, interactive process that allows parents, teachers or friends to help children understand giving and participate in a stimulating experience. The book combines entertaining narrative with fun learning activities as it invites readers to record their ideas, dreams and wishes for the world - making them the authors of their stories and creating a "scrapbook" of their journey into compassion, philanthropy and the power of their actions.
