Children’s Book Teaches Children to Combat Prejudice
Empathy Airlines is the second book in the Jelly Beans the Cheetah and Hope children’s series. Where book 1 also taught children about empathy, book 2 Jelly Beans and Hope explore what originally brought them together and brings a new element of listening with compassion.
Empathy Airlines is a game that the 2 played to work to learn each other’s languages. She had a compassionate experience when she lost her Mother and traveled to Africa and wanted to share her story. They use play and communication to teach and interact with other children and to learn more about each other. It adds a simple touch about how we can combat prejudice no matter what species you are or your talents and looks.
Along the way they help another injured Cheetah and also get scared when they encounter an angry Elephant Mother with her baby. They have to assure her they mean no harm.
While playing their Airlines Empathy game with all the children they created a song that is meant to relay that all people and animals have value and encourages loving each other, empathy, combat prejudice, kindness and a world of seeing.
