Teach Your Children to Appreciate What They Have

Many people want what others apparently have, all while overlooking the possessions they have and the characteristics they possess. This story teaches your child to appreciate what they have, and not worry so much about what others possess.

Adam is a poor boy who lives with his mother and ill father. Always busy with chores, he finally gets a day off, and his mother tells him to make the most of it. Living on a hill, Adam notices a house from afar that has windows that shine like gold. Adam decides to venture to the house, and wonders what he’ll find.

  • Who lives in the house?
  • Are they better off than Adam’s family?
  • Is there a lesson for Adam to learn?

This story teaches the value of appreciating what you have. Adam thinks the house he’s going to is better than his, but is it? Your kid will soon discover that the grass isn’t always as greener on the other side. To quote Albert Camus, “To be happy, we must not be too concerned with others.” Your children will soon learn that they possess what others have, even though they don’t know it.

The Other Side is perfect for story time, or for your kids to read on their own. Its colorful illustrations and easy language will keep your children interested, and its lesson is one that both children and adults can learn from, as desiring something that someone else has happens at any age.

The lesson of this book is best expressed in this inspirational quote by C.S. Lewis :"What you see and what you hear depends a great deal on where you are standing."

The Other Side is a charming and encouraging bedtime story for the entire family. The book is also a wonderful resource for teachers and counselors who wish to share the importance of appreciating what you have.

The book contains vibrant, engaging illustrations and a simple yet inspiring lesson that is easy to digest.
