Reach Out and Give / Dar y ayudar (Paperback)
Young children can participate in service learning projects to help make the world a better place. This English-Spanish bilingual book begins with the concept of gratitude, because feeling grateful is a powerful motivator. Words and pictures show children contributing to their community in simple yet meaningful ways.
