Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This nonfiction book shows how young readers can be more thoughtful and considerate to others. The book opens by defining what being considerate means and continues by depicting different scenarios where a child chooses to do something kind for someone experiencing difficulty. Young readers will identify with the common situations shown, including making a card for a sick family member, setting the table to help with dinner, cleaning up after oneself, and sharing toys. Donahue uses a repetitious format as each scenario closes by emphasizing how the characters are “being considerate” in bold. Previn’s Van Gogh-like illustrations portray children being considerate and emphasize the act described. The simple examples and solutions are not overreaching or complex and are best suited for a younger crowd. This selection from the “Part of the Way to Be!” series is a great one for teachers to share with students to encourage them to think about and be more considerate. The picture book includes a brief list of further resources, such as books and websites, as well as a short index. Reviewer: Elizabeth Sulock
