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.

“Hello, I am The Principle of Teamwork.
“People say that I am the reminder they need to work together to accomplish great things.
“People also say that I help them feel good about themselves when they are a part of a team—something bigger than themselves.
“It is normal that sometimes in life we can feel lonely. But, when we all come together as a team, we can help each other out during the tough times in life.
“I like to see people work together as a team in sports and at work. However, my favorite teams are the families at home coming together to help and care for each other.
“My parents told me that there is no ‘I’ in team, and that people do their best when they are working together as part of a team to accomplish a goal.
“Please call on me when you need some encouragement to be a team player. I can help remind you about how wonderful it is to be a part of a group—something greater than yourself.
“I will be there to support and encourage you—no matter what situations you experience in life.
“Please count on me to help you be a great team player.”
