When I first started my giving journey, I dove into some great books about giving that fueled my passion and understanding about giving. Some of these books are for kids, some for adults. Nic and I read the children’s book together, which helped me plant the giving idea. The adult books helped me find ideas, understand the benefits and read others people’s stories about giving. I was inspired and found these seven books to be a great foundation to giving every day.
The CitizenKid Collection from Kids Can Press have a series of picture books that speak to cultural and environmental diversity that can inspire giving ideas within your family.
We love reading and learning about others research and understanding of giving. We also love that reading possesses similar benefits to giving. Reading lowers stress, increases empathy, decreases depression and helps you sleep better. Combining reading and giving, powerful stuff! Our children’s books suggestions are a great way to introduce giving to your children in a fun and creative way. Nic and his brothers loved these books. After we had read them a few times, we gave them to friends as one of our daily gives.
Give these books a shot and share your favorite giving books with us. If you have come across a wonderful book about giving, share the title and author in our comments section. The more we can inspire each other, the happier our world will be!
