Talking with Trees
Getting to the heart of moral values for children
As children play and grow, they’re learning how to be good people. Parents, teachers, and the other kids on the playground all shape the ways children learn to be trustworthy, considerate, confident, and kind. Talking with Trees books and teaching resources are part of that character development for many children. Around the world, the books, worksheets, lesson plans, and other resources are used in homes and schools to teach children important lessons on values like honesty, respect, responsibility, and caring.
Connecting through real experiences
With captivating illustrations, Talking with Trees books help children feel the story so they can connect to their own experiences. Making moral choices isn’t just a mental process. Kids feel whether something is right or wrong, like when we feel a twist in our gut that something’s wrong or when our hearts swell with pride when we do the right thing. Talking with Trees books are written to help children develop that inner moral guide that will steer them toward making good choices. Each story is based on common, realistic scenarios that kids can relate to from their own lives.
An extensive free resources catalog makes it easy for parents and teachers to create a complete lesson around these important moral traits. The activities are written to get to the heart of moral issues and to help children learn that making good choices feels good.

I got this book to read to my classroom and they loved it. They really understood the story and its message. I have heard discussions while we did activities related to the story, about ways they could be the “bigger person” with their friends.
