Hard copies of these books are available for borrowing from the Hong Kong Public Libraries.
“Erin’s Story” reminds us that it is not just through birth that families are formed. Some families are formed through adoption. Either way, parents should love and provide for their children no differently.
Let us teach our children about gratitude and warmth. Ask them to be thankful for what they already have and allow them to feel the warmth a family, whether through birth or adoption, can bring.
“No Matter What I Wear, I Am Still Me And They Love Me” reminds us the importance of inner beauty, not outer appearance. While we have to be clean and tidy to keep good hygiene and be respectful to others, it is not what we wear that makes us beautiful. It is truly the love and kindness we hold in our hearts that makes us beautiful.
Let us teach our children about elegance and respectfulness. Ask them to speak nicely and not interrupt when someone is speaking. Ask them to talk confidently, but not loudly. Ask them to be nice to everyone – even people who do not look well or look different; people who have physical or mental special needs; people who are wounded or have body parts missing. Share with them that a smiling face and a loving heart are our best wears at all times!
