Environmental themes run throughout the story. Talk to kids about how they should take care of our planet, and things they can do to make it more like planet Friendesha and less like planet Oily Spoily.
- Two small house plants
- Aerosol Lubricant
Talk to your children about what makes a plant grow healthy. Ask them about how the Oily Spoilies squirting oil on everything would affect the living things. Does oil make plants happy or sad? Ask them what they think will happen to two plants if you give one water and sunlight, and give the other one aerosol lubricant and put it in a dark box.
Find out by experimenting!
Get children to think more abstractly by comparing spraying oil on a plant to calling someone a mean name. Then compare giving the plant sun and water to complimenting someone.

The Joe Dial shows you how to read people in simple, time-tested, and elemental way that has been forgotten in today's complex world.
Once you learn to recognize the three essential energy types that define all human beings -- Takers, Givers, and Take-and-Givers -- you will gain an incredibly powerful tool for "re-tuning" all of your relationships so they work for you. You will also gain the insight to transform yourself into the kind of person you've always wanted to be.
Feeling stuck or unhappy in any area of your life? The Joe Dial supplies the missing key that will get the gears of success turning. You'll quickly become a better spouse, a better parent, a better team member, a better leader, and a better friend."
