Character education seldom benefits from lectures — but it does benefit from Pandora Puppy’s comical tale with its accompanying character education activities. Pandora Puppy, like many children, is very busy, but not at all concerned with others. As Pandora learns to be touched with the things that touch others, and to do something to help them feel better, she works out a definition of compassion — or caring — and shares it with the young listener or older reader. Compassion is caring, and Pandora needs a big dose of it. She has to learn what it means, though, and with the caring circle, she learns quickly – as will readers. Written for 3 to 8 year old children, this 32-page book includes in its gentle tale a clear definition of compassion, and the puppies’ Compassion Song. Supplemental materials reinforce the lesson.
