Color Your World With Kindness
Don’t be a wrinkle in someone’s heart!
There are many stories of compassion right here in our own homes, schools and community. Mrs. Ramirez reminds us that we can change the world when we are filled with love. Let’s just fill the world with love and we can make the world awesome.
Believe in Love – Companionship/ Compassion Being the “new kid” in a group is often not easy. Henry the Hedgehog can tell you a thing or two about it. His first day at forest school is already proving difficult and although he would like to get to know his new classmates, there is always something standing in his way: his spines. Over and over, the little hedgehog tries to fit in and play with the other animals. But his classmates are scared of getting hurt by his spines. Time goes by, Henry notices his fellow pupils whispering and giggling behind his back. As the little hedgehog sadly walks out of school, his classmates surprise him with a gift they arranged together. What at first appears to Henry as a joke quickly turns out to be the gift he had been longing for all this time: companionship.
