Myron Uhlberg wrote Dad,Jackie, and me and it is our book of the month. This story of a young boy and his hearing-impaired father shows how their love of baseball—and their admiration for the newest player for the Brooklyn Dodgers, Jackie Robinson—brings them closer together. As their shared passion in the great American pastime helps to deepen the relationship between father and son, it also deepens their understanding and acceptance of the differences between people.

How to be a Cooperative Person

  • Listen carefully to others and be sure you understand what they are saying

  • Share when you have something that others would like to have
  • Take turns when there is something that nobody wants to do, or when more than one person wants to do the same thing
  • Compromise when you have a serious conflict
  • Do your part the very best that you possibly can. This will inspire others to do the same
  • Show appreciation to people for what they contribute
  • Encourage others to do their best
  • Make people feel important and needed. Working together is a lot more fun that way
  • Don’t isolate or exclude anyone. Everybody has something valuable to offer, and nobody likes being left out
