Ricky Sticky Fingers: A Picture Book About Stealing Kindle Edition
Meet Ricky! A cute little boy that just can't 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 wasn't 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 there's 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 doesn't respect what is yours. This book uses empathy in a powerful way to teach children that stealing is wrong.
Author Julia Cook, has an incredible gift of writing books for children! Children will quickly learn through Ricky how to take the stickiness out of lying and stealing by modeling ways of being honest and respectful towards others and their belongings, and by making things right. Ricky Sticky Fingers should certainly find it's way onto your bookshelf if you're a Parent, School Counselor, Teacher, Social Worker, Psychologist, and/or Pediatrician. --Erin E. Bowden, M.S. - School Counselor --This text refers to the paperback edition.

He is hard on books, but never have pages actually fallen out of the book. It's a shame because i bought it to teach him not to take things, the way I buy Berenstein bear books for their lessons. But none center on stealing. Loved the message. If you buy, take pictures and make apdf. Wish I had.
