Every Rodro story has valuable lessons for you and your children to share and discuss. No matter who does the reading (child, parent, or educator), the supporting Convo-Questions generate inspiring and insightful conversations. These discussions enable your children to analyze, internalize, and utilize the character-enriching, social-emotional skills they learn. This is self-empowerment!

 

“One of the greatest lessons we can teach our children is how to teach themselves.”– Paul Rodriguez
