What Are Wants and Needs by Barbara Gottfried Hollander
For young people, it can be easy to confuse what one wants as opposed to what one actually needs. This thoughtful resource elucidates the basic concepts of wants and needs and how they fit into the economic landscape. Readers will be asked to consider the different priorities of cultures from around the world, offering a more global overview, as well as a perspective on what people needed in the past. The text nudges the idea of needs further with a discussion of emotional needs and what those might be.

With a gentle text from the award-winning author of Sophie’s Squash, Pat Zietlow Miller, and irresistible art from Jen Hill, Be Kind is an unforgettable story about how two simple words can change the world.
The Enormous Potato by Aubrey Davis
It’s harvest time and a farmer plants an enormous potato. When it is time to pull it out of the ground, he cannot do it alone. He calls on the help of all his farmhands, family, and friends, until finally a mouse comes and helps pull the potato out.
What does #LiveInsideOut mean?
We focus on helping kids develop the character skills (i.e. social and emotional skills) necessary to thrive in their lives, schools, and later in jobs and community, which is the “inside piece”. The “outside” part is being connected to the community through volunteerism. All of our programs combine these two elements!
Thank you to our Annual Presenting Partners!
The Inside Out Club is positively impacting more than 3,000 children and their families each year.
