Just Because is the first book in a series called Flip Side Stories™.
Flip Side Stories™ is a series of stories that is intended to teach children to see another point of view. Each story has two sides of the same everyday situation that children can relate to. Just Because is about two families who are learning the value of giving to those in need and learning about needs and wants. The first family teaches their children why is important to give to others as they struggle to give their things away. The flip side is the family in need. They are teaching their children that even though they don't have a lot, they too can help others who are also in need and that they need to be thankful for the things they receive and already have. Just Because teaches the value of giving, being thankful, having empathy and compassion and working together to reach a goal.
Flip Side Stories™ teaches children how to see new perspectives, respect other points of view and encourages empathy and compassion for others. Future stories have their own lessons like self-perception, animal care, social cues, empathy, respecting other's things, bullying and more. Each story is written in poetic form and is divided in two parts sharing two different perspectives. Flip Side Stories™ have two distinct voices of the same everyday situation that is familiar to children and the adults who will read to them. Many of the lessons are those that my family values and I am certain many other families will too.
