Greetings Earth Scouts Community!
This months featured book is actually an awesome resource for any Earth Scout leader or family. Spinning Tales, Weaving Hope is actually two books in one. There are many tales included and also there are quite a number of teaching projects or activities that relate to all areas of the curriculum. So any storyteller would want to own it and any teacher as well. Cartoons, television, and comic books for children are all more focused on violence than in the past. New Society Publishers offers this collection of stories that teach problem-solving, cooperation, and creative thinking about social issues such as tolerance, understanding other ethnic groups, and how to handle controversy diplomatically. The authors' introduction explains th difference that stories can make, as well as how to use storytelling as a model for patterning positive behavior. Combined with each story are creative activities, cooperative games, and related reading lists.
Because this book has multiple areas of focus - Peace, Justice, and the Environment - you may find creative inspiration for your Earth Scout to earn some badges through some of the activities. ?
