Childhood is the time for virtues to be taught, or, more accurtely, "caught." And the virtue of respect is one sorely needed in a world more and more diverse, congested, and interdependent. Just what is respect? "It's a good way to be, and a way to be good," says the authors. "It's a way to care about others, ourselves, and our world. When we have the virtue of respect, we try to treat people and our whole world with extra love and kindness." Let this book bring home the important message that our world, and everyone in it, deserves respect.
