Executive Director Jill Perez Gobora has written a Healthy Relationships book for elementary school students called A Bowl Full of Hearts. This unique children’s book tells the story of Maggie, who is given a magical bowl.
The story follows Maggie through a day in her pre-school class – from work time in the block area to fun on the playground. Maggie learns who her true friends are and which friends she should walk away from as she contemplates the poem:
”Now is the time to stop and say,
‘Does this friend make me happy? Should I continue to play?’
If I’m not feeling good and I don’t want to stay,
I will find a new friend and leave straight away!”
A Bowl Full of Hearts introduces the 10 Signs of a Healthy Relationship to our youngest learners. Supplemental teaching plans are included in the back so that teachers and caregivers can continue the conversation.
Our mission is to provide Kisses of Opportunity in the form of domestic violence educational resources as well as educational scholarships to low-income students throughout the U.S.
