How to guide children and adolescents to find their strengths

None of us were born masters of honesty or self-control; these skills must be consciously developed. We grow stronger in what we do most often; we grow weaker in what we rarely do. For instance, self-regulation is proven to be a better predictor of success in school than IQ. Teaching that concentrates on character strengths has a longer-term effect on learning and is more likely to lead to a fulfilling life than teaching focused only on informational skills. Regardless of the field or the time, we all succeed through our strengths.

This book gives you the tools for implementing strength-based teaching. The book introduces the most important character strengths and tells you where to observe them and how to further develop them with exercises.

The Character Crow’s Story Book (in Finnish)

A friend’s kindness and compassion can help you when you are on a swimming trip and a horsefly bites you and then steals your towel. Judgment and courage come in handy when the marquise is stuck between the count and the duke, and some perspective is needed when your cookie trip ends with you getting lost in the forest… The crow’s wings keep him in the air even when things don’t go as planned.

This book includes 26 stories, each focusing on at least one character strength or emotion. At the end of each story, there are exercises for deepening the reading experience by discussing the story with children and for developing their strength and emotional skills. The stories also include exercises for language development and for artistic and practical subjects, which makes the stories a great introduction to many kinds of pleasant activities.

The stories are excellent for elementary education but also for slightly younger and older children. They can be read in schools, kindergartens and daycare centres, at home, at your grandmother’s or friend’s house, or anywhere the crow flies.
