It is never too early in the development of a child to start talking about the importance of principles like honesty, courage, and teamwork. This book is part of a series of books about The Principles of Our World that provide parents and teachers with the opportunity to read to young children (ages 4+) and talk about a variety of situations they will experience in life. For young, independent readers (ages 7+), The Principles of Our World book series is a great addition to their book collection. At the end of the book, there is a section called, “Where Do We Go From Here?” This section is designed for children, parents, and educators to discuss situations they will encounter in life and talk about how The Principles of Our World can help them effectively handle these situations.
The Principles of Our World are here to help.
“Hello, I am The Principle of Perseverance.
“People say I am the reminder they need to keep working hard to overcome the challenges they face.
“There will be times in your life when things get really difficult. You may feel like giving up and quitting when you get tired of working hard to accomplish your goals.
“When my parents came to this country, they struggled a great deal to give me and my sisters a better life. They said Perseverance was the only reason they reached their goals. When I struggled in school, my dad told me Perseverance would always help me. When I graduated, my parents gave me a shirt that says PERSEVERANCE. It reminds me of the need to work hard to overcome challenges.
“Please call on me when you need the strength to keeping working hard. I can help remind you to keep trying no matter how tough it gets.
“I will be there to support and encourage you—no matter what situations you experience in life.
“Please, count on me to help you have Perseverance.”
