Teaching service and helping others can't be done through direct instruction. Children learn these traits through the examples of others and their own experiences helping others, then seeing the good that comes from it. To help children develop a spirit of service, helping others, and self-sacrifice, teachers and parents can set up ways to help their students engage in service activities.
Or... you can can share positive
examples of service via stories in great children's books. Most powerful: do both! :) The children's
books listed below are helpful for teaching self- sacrifice,
service, and helping others. We hope to add more, so please share.
