Teaching Empathy and Acceptance
Chepecho is different from the other animals because she has hooves, wings, and a fishtail. She wants to play with the horses, the birds, and the sea lions, but the other animals are afraid of each other. They only see their differences. Can Chepecho help them see how similar they are?
Chepecho encourages acceptance of others through a heartwarming story about making friends and bringing everyone together despite their differences. This story teaches children how to respond when someone is being bullied and helps parents start conversations with children about inclusiveness.
