'Generosity's Backpack' is the fifth book in 'Everyone Longs to Belong', a series which shares important life lessons — on intuition, inner values and introspection — through stories.
It's the annual Show and Share Day in the Inniverse, and Generosity has nothing to share — except for her most prized possession! Overwhelmed by the pressure to live up to her name, she agonizes over the thought of doing something she doesn't want to … Until, with the wisdom of Inni, she remembers the true meaning of generosity — and how it's so much more than giving material things.
mybestfriendinni has 12 characters led by Max, the human protagonist who is delighted to share her Inni (or intuition) with everyone. The remaining characters are all personifications of either a positive value or a negative human trait, and they each represent a 'friend' or a 'frenemy'. The friends are Generosity, Honesty, Harmony, Courage, Love and Kindness; and the frenemies are Bully, Selfish, Liar and Envy. Inni is there as a guide to everyone in the Inniverse, and is in all the stories to share the important lessons learned.
In an era in which children are inundated with information and social expectations, the need for kids to grow up with a clear understanding of core values such as empathy, compassion and self-confidence has never been greater. With challenges such as bullying being faced by school-aged kids, mybestfriendinni is excited to share a fresh and engaging way to show kids how to better understand and identify different behaviours — be it their own or those of others — and how to manage them.
