Makayla Cares About Others from the Author: Virginia Kroll. Makayla loves to fix all kinds of things, and thanks to the toolbox Grandpa gave her, she’s ready to mend anything she can. When Aunt Karen’s turtle figurine broke or when Mr. Bell’s bird-feeder fell off the tree, Makayla was there to help. On her way to Grandpa’s one day, Makayla sees her neighbor planting a memory garden in honor of her cat who passed away. Makayla cares about Mrs. MacFee and knows that she should help with the garden, but there are bugs in the garden, and Makayla is terrified of bugs! When Makayla leaves Mrs. MacFee alone in her garden, she feels sad that she can’t help her neighbor. Then, she begins to think about how her grandpa still takes her to their favorite ice-cream shop, even though he can’t eat sweets anymore. Makayla realizes that caring is about doing nice things for other people, even when you don’t have to and when it’s hard to do. Makayla returns to Mrs. MacFee’s garden, determined to overcome her fear of bugs in order to help plant the garden. This story in the “Way I Act” series shows readers the importance of kindness and compassion. Virginia Kroll lives in New York. Nancy Cote, who lives in Massachusetts, adds her warm illustrations.

Good Neighbor Nicholas from the Author: Virginia Kroll. Nicholas can’t stand his next-door neighbor, Mr. Robinson. Mr. Robinson gets mad about everything—especially when their dog Bitsy escapes and runs over to Mr. Robinson’s yard and gets into his roses. Dad explains that Mr. Robinson is probably grumpy because his wife is in a nursing home and because he has a lot of back trouble. But Nicholas doesn’t care, at least until he has a bad day of his own. The empathy and caring Nicholas gains for his neighbor will help children appreciate the value of conflict resolution.

The Ethics Of Care from the Author: Alan Blum. Beginning with a focus on the ethical foundations of caregiving in health and expanding towards problems of ethics and justice implicated in a range of issues, this book develops and expands the notion of care itself and its connection to practice. Organised around the themes of culture as a restraint on caregiving in different social contexts and situations, innovative methods in healthcare, and the way in which culture works to position care as part of a rhetorical approach to dependency, responsibility, and justice, The Ethics of Care presents case studies examining institutional responses to end-of-life issues, the notion of informed consent, biomedicine, indigenous rights and postcolonialism in care and theoretical approaches to the concept of care. Offering discussions from a variety of disciplinary approaches, including sociology, communication, and social theory, as well as hermeneutics, phenomenology, and deconstruction, this book will appeal to scholars across the social sciences with interests in healthcare, medicine, justice and the question of how we think about care as a notion and social form, and how this is related to practice.
