Author Anne Neuberger gives adults and children a chance to address the tough questions in life with her book, To Love Tenderly: Teaching Compassion and Justice through Stories & Activities for Ages 5-9. Any awareness of world events sparks questions like, 'Why is their poverty?' or 'Why are people hurting?' To Love Tenderly is a child-and-adult book that engages these questions with stories about people whose lives are very different from their own. Her spellbinding stories, some based on real-life and others on folk tales, involve children and families from varying countries such as Brazil, Tanzania, Guatemala, Croatia, Sweden, and China, introduce issues of poverty, injustice and abuse of resources that plant seeds for compassion and justice.

To Love Tenderly, is for grades K-4 and the 32 stories are grouped in age levels making them suitable for reading aloud or being acted out by children. Ms. Neuberger introduces two different social justice projects that deal with hunger and child labor for hands on experience. The final act in To Love Tenderlyincludes several plays that invite children 'try-on' these different lives. Perfect for Catholic school religion teachers & catechists!
