Eli & Ozzy

Kids Learning About Respect


When Eli and Ozzy accidentally knock down Clara at school they are given a chance to learn to see other people with greater RESPECT. With the help of Mrs. Shoma the boys take a respect walk, and it opens their eyes to the amazing stories of the people around them. Eli and Ozzy is book two in the Virtues and Values series.

Virtues and values are learned through modeling, experiences, daily routines, and stories. In this book we focus on the development of respect for others, learning to look more carefully and learn about the amazing people around us. Careful observation and respect lead us to treating others with greater care!
