These books deliver a bunch of messages which are very critical to EQ development, such as:
1. Only change yourself. Change comes from within; it requires respect for self and others.
2. Don't assume, ask. Don't ever assume what the “other person” needs or wants.  Try asking.
3. Take risks. Be willing to fail, but never give up.
4. Wait before deciding. Waiting improves thinking; become a “delay specialist.”
5. Genes are not a blueprint that predicts greatness for some and doom for the rest of us.  Stimulus is what counts.
6. The higher both the quantity and quality of your relationships, the happier you will live.

Don't Need Friends
There's a new dog in the junkyard, and boy, is he ever grouchy! He seems the perfect friend for surly, grumbling Rat. But the two animals are only interested in shouting at each other. "Don't you come near me!" barks Dog, and Rat mutters back, "Fine with me. Don't need friends, don't need 'em at all!" But as this crusty duo soon discovers, everybody needs a friend. Especially during a bitter winter in a junkyard where warmth is hard to find—and a foot-long salami sandwich is a near-miracle.

Endearing and sassy, this uplifting story of the importance of companionship will put a smile on even the grumpiest of faces.

They soon tower above him and bear a curious-looking fruit. As Wesley experiments, he finds that the plant will provide food, clothing, shelter, and even recreation.

Beautiful Oops!
A life lesson that all parents want their children to learn: It's OK to make a mistake. In fact, hooray for mistakes! A mistake is an adventure in creativity, a portal of discovery. A spill doesn't ruin a drawing—not when it becomes the shape of a goofy animal. And an accidental tear in your paper? Don't be upset about it when you can turn it into the roaring mouth of an alligator.

An award winning, best-selling, one-of-a-kind interactive book, Beautiful Oops! shows young readers how every mistake is an opportunity to make something beautiful. A singular work of imagination, creativity, and paper engineering, Beautiful Oops! is filled with pop-ups, lift-the-flaps, tears, holes, overlays, bends, smudges, and even an accordion “telescope”—each demonstrating the magical transformation from blunder to wonder.
