The delightful Barnyard Buddies engage everyone as they show how to use dialogue and STOP for Peace! This rhyming, richly illustrated, conflict resolution and anger management story, for ages 3 to 9, conveys important impulse-control and peacemaking skills to all who read it! For schools and homes, or use in a teen mentor program! Kids love it! So will you!
Children can relate to the loveable characters, whose emotions are charmingly revealed by artist Jorry Keith. The heartfelt way Julie Penshorn presents this topic, and the sensitive illustrations, make this book a children’s favorite!
The cornerstone for the entire "STOP for Peace" process is the first step, S -- STOP and breathe. Peace is most possible when all have cooled off and embraced the insights provided through anger management, then they can dialogue about their other emotions in step T--Tell how you feel. O--Open your mind (brainstorm) and P -- Plan a deal are the remaining steps. When people can safely speak from their hearts, they can most often find solutions that work for all. That’s the sign of successful conflict resolution.
Includes a parent and teacher guide and questions for discussion. Music notation for the “STOP for Peace” song is also included, to reinforce the learning. "I STOP for Peace" companion CD, also by Julie Penshorn, is available through the publisher and other outlets (look for it on the site you are on right now!) where music is sold. The music builds the skills and carries them deep into the brain so they are never forgotten.
