value of the month: trustworthiness or amanah

hippo and mouse trust fall

every month we focus on a value or character trait
that we want to nourish within ourselves and as a family.
this month it is trustworthiness or amanah in Arabic.

in addition to reading stories on this theme from the library,
i also work with character building day by day, by anne d. mather & louise b. weldon,
as well as islamic values for children by lila assiff-tarabin
and a to z of akhlaaaq: moral values for children by nafees khan.

download and print this month’s value
then talk about, read about and be about being trustworthy this month.
studies show it only takes 21 days to make a habit!

do you know any good picture books or short stories about trustworthiness?
