Meet Ricky! A cute little boy that just cant seem to figure out that stealing is wrong:
When I see something that I really want,
I think, Hey, that could be mine!
So I look both ways, reach out my hand,
and take it at just the right time.
If I ever get caught, I just pretend
that it wasnt me that took it.
A quick little lie is just what I need,
and lying helps me get through it!
Taking things that I want to have
at times can be very tricky.
But theres no way that I can help myself,
because all of my fingers are sticky!
Ricky learns first-hand what it feels like to have something stolen from him. Then he uses the GOOD inside of himself to overtake the BAD and returns the items that he took from others.
Finally, a book that confronts the issue of stealing and offers a strategy to curb the desire to steal! Through a fun and whimsical story, children will learn the concept of ownership and how it feels when someone doesnt respect what is yours. This book uses empathy in a powerful way to teach children that stealing is wrong.
