About the Book

Getting a GRIP on CHARACTER is a complete curriculum designed for teachers, parents, grandparents, and anyone who has a role in working with children.

    Wonder Guide to Help Kids Understand Character

    Posted by Peny Ward on May 30th 2022

    This is an extremely well-written book with so many resources to help children understand the importance of character traits such as respect, honesty, responsibility, and caring. The stories and activities are presented in such a way as to inspire and open the way for conversations. I would highly recommended it for any parent, grandparent, or teacher who wants to help a child reach their full potential in life.
