Yuki is a robot that, in order to work, needs to be programmed with the 7 friendship superpowers: kindness, creativity, humor, forgiveness, honesty, empathy and enthusiasm!

THE VALUES OF HISTORY

This is a story inspired by one of the most beautiful themes of human flourishing: the virtues and strengths of character (Peterson and Seligman, 2004). Books have always been privileged messengers to tell children about human virtues and values. This one talks about friendship and 7 superpowers - kindness, creativity, humor, enthusiasm, honesty, forgiveness and empathy - that we all have and put at the service, every day, many times without knowing.

YOUR PURPOSE

Throughout our experience in interventions in primary schools, working intensively on this Positive Education theme, we feel that children are involved with a lot of interest in discovering their personal strengths. Creating and implementing contexts for discovering your positive traits and promoting positive peer relationships is one of the keys to your psychological well-being.

The creation and launch of the book "Yuki, the robot with a heart. The Superpowers of Friendship" arises from the need to create an educational resource that explicitly works on the strengths of character in children between 6 and 10 years old.

This book is part of the Growing in Strengths - Sowing Values® intervention model (7-10 years old), giving countless children the opportunity to develop their character strengths. Yuki, and her story, launch the imaginary that will accompany them throughout the intervention, leaving them with stimulating learning proposals to discover their strengths and their peers.

The children that have already explored history, led by their teachers, certified it with the seal of enthusiasm! Their involvement encouraged us to take this step that will allow us to spread Yuki's messages to many hearts!

In addition to this special function, within our school project of socio-emotional development, the book is also a path for families to travel together, towards their best. We know that they will get involved with history, review themselves in the dialogues and discover superpowers. At the end, they will find clues for reflection on the topic and suggestions for growing up as a family.

Segredos revelados num final divertido!

WHO WRITTEN AND ILLUSTRATED

Mafalda Lobo (author) and Rita Correia (illustrator) met 8 years ago, as result of a happy chance that brought them together in the book "The Princess of Light and the Crystal Fairy - The magic seeds", an author's edition for solidarity purposes.

ONE MORE SEED

This campaign will allow us to pay the costs of illustration and graphics. This is the second crowdfunding we have done. The previous one, very successful, motivated us to embrace this new challenge. Although the current social context is quite different from what we experienced 2 years ago, we believe that this is yet another strong reason for, with hope and courage, to continue to sow values!

    Obrigada pelo vosso generoso apoio!

    Boa tarde!

    Esta semana que passou atingimos 50% do montante de que necessitamos para lançar o livro infantil "Yuki, o robô com coração - os superpoderes da Amizade". Esta importante conquista só foi possível graças a cada um de vós e, por isso mesmo, vimos agradecer-vos o vosso gesto de generosidade que nos incentiva a continuar!
    Gostaríamos ainda de referir que recebemos vários apoios anónimos e não temos forma de saber de onde vieram. Pedimos a quem contribuiu nessa condição que verifique se a quer manter, pois pode mudar de ideias até ao fim da campanha. Atendendo ao valor de certos donativos recebidos de anónimos, julgamos que pode ter havido um lapso no preenchimento dos seus dados de identificação e ficaram registados nessa condição. Verifiquem, por isso, a situação e contactem-nos se desejam ser identificados (semearvalores@gmail.com). Só assim poderemos enviar-vos as recompensas no final da campanha!
    Muito obrigada por nos acompanharem! Continuem a divulgar para que, em breve, celebremos juntos os 100%!
    Bom domingo e boa semana,

    Mafalda, Patrícia e Kalpna
