Seeing Through Another Lens

A Perspective-Taking Story

SKU: D507-Net

This Perspective-taking story will help readers become more understanding of other peoples thoughts and feelings.

Everyone was gathered in the cafeteria for lunch, so Freddie decided it was the perfect moment to show off the grisly gash on his leg. He thought the scar was cool and impressive. But Freddie thought wrong. No one was impressed, but they were grossed out.

That’s Freddie the Fly. He assumes everyone sees, thinks, and feels the exact same way he does. And it’s becoming a problem.

The lunch lady demanded Freddie make a beeline to the nurse’s office. Freddie wasted no time telling Nurse Mantis about how he made his leg the center of lunchroom attention. Rather than just treating the cut, however, Nurse Mantis diagnosed Freddie’s real problem – his vision! He struggles seeing any perspective other than his own.

Freddie didn’t realize the nasty-looking scratch would be stomach-churning to anyone who just wanted to eat. Just like he didn’t understand why Mesquita had swatted at him that morning (too self-absorbed!) or why his best buddy dumped him as a project partner (too overbearing!).

To help Freddie be more empathetic, sensitive, and understanding toward the opinions, attitudes and feelings of others, Nurse Mantis encourages him to use “perspective-taking lenses.” Will that switch Freddie’s outlook from ME to WE? Or will he continue to annoy his friends and family by seeing every situation from only one side – his?

Seeing Through Another Lens is an entertaining addition to the Freddie the Fly storybook series which focuses on teaching young readers valuable life skills, such as active listening, staying focused, and understanding social cues.
