Children learn that differences are to be celebrated, and it’s great to be yourself.
Bring the lessons to life!
Here are a few questions that can help you and your child connect with the story more deeply:
Understand It: How did Bigfoot feel when the squirrels said he was "too big" and laughed? What helped Bigfoot feel better?
Apply It: Has anyone ever said something that hurt your feelings?
Pro Tip: We can’t protect children from getting their feelings hurt, but we can support them if it happens. Remind your child what they like about themselves to help them feel better and support their self-esteem.
