FledglingFare

FledglingFareI’ve been privileged to work with young children as a counselor for over fifteen years.  These “fledglings” have been some of my greatest teachers.  In this role, I created a curriculum inspired by Dr. Martin Seligman’s The Optimistic Child and Character Strengths and Virtuesthe game-changing psychological classification of what’s good and strong and builds resilience in human beings.  These and other Positive Psychology-influenced works provided the research base behind the lessons I’ve developed for children at my school.  They are built on great children’s books that reveal resilience and virtue in action.

“FledglingFare” gathers SparrowFare’s posts about children:  reflections for those who support them and reviews of my favorite (and field-tested!) children’s books.  Profound and wonder-full, they stretch the souls of all who still love to be little.
