Friends – Birds of a Feather

December 29th, 2007 Posted in A Lesson in Friendship, Children Get it | Comments Off on Friends – Birds of a Feather

 

 

One of the most dynamic and difficult things that we learn growing up is the development of a relationship into a friendship. Crumbsnatcher learns that doing the right thing can be fun. In fact he learns that you can develop a relationship that turns into a friendship by doing the right thing.

Crumbsnatcher meets another bird, Strongshare, who likes to do the right thing and is concerned about others. Crumbsnatcher has always had to look out for himself and was never too concerned about others. Strongshare shares the concept of friendship with Crumbsnatcher when he says, “Birds of a feather sticks together”. You see this concept in nature all the time. A number of birds fly in a group called a flock, because there is safety in numbers and they can look out for each other. The video above demonstrates this concept.

Most times these are the same types of birds in a flock, hence the saying “Birds of a feather”, and Strongshare uses the saying in a less literal term to denote friendship. When I was growing up as a little boy in the inner-city there was a song that was popular about friendship and I would like to share a few word of that song with you. “Friends! How many of us have them. Friends! Ones we can depend on.” Having a friendship means that you have a relationship where each of you can depend on the other to help and look out for each other. This is an important aspect of growing up. In the Crumbsnatcher DVD we emphasize the importance of developing a relationship with others who want to do well and making them your friends.

Who is Crumbsnatcher?

December 22nd, 2007 Posted in Meet Crumbsnatcher | Comments Off on Who is Crumbsnatcher?

Crumbsnatcher is the name of a bird that lives in bird town. Like most birds you know he was hatched from an egg. What is so interesting about Crumbsnatcher is his attire. He is the only bird in his neighborhood that wears a hat and sneakers. This makes Crumbsnatcher different from his friends and he stands out in the crowd.

Is being different as a child considered a good thing? Do we encourage individuality or support an environment of conformity. This is one of the questions that we will look at in a future post and we are interested in what you think.

 

I read a post on this topic that I wanted to share an excerpt from. The post is from Joy Chaser.com … When I was a child, I remember wishing I was more like the popular kids, but those thoughts faded quickly when I realized that my individuality was more important than popularity. I’m glad I wasn’t in the “in crowd” as a kid; it made me into the person I am today, a strong-willed, independent young man, ready to overcome any obstacle the world may throw at me. Don’t be afraid to be different.”

Bird Town-An Opportunity for Discussion on Diversity

December 15th, 2007 Posted in Children Get it | Comments Off on Bird Town-An Opportunity for Discussion on Diversity

The introduction of Bird Town in Crumbsnatcher Gets A New Name is an opportunity for teachers and parents to discuss postive aspects of diversity to young children.

There are several different bird families in Crumbsnatcher. The Humming Bird family, Finch, and Boo Coo’s each have their own differences in appearance but all live and work in Bird Town.

Parents and teachers could ask the children if they know other families that look different from them in their community.  There can be a discussion about what makes people different and what makes them the same.

Although there are differences all of them were still birds. There is such an amazing simplicity in this story. Children really get this concept if introduced early before the complexities of bias infect them.
