Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Children often are concerned about things being fair. They want things to be fair when they are playing with others, taking turns, and going places. Children do not like it when they think they are being treated unfairly or things are not equal. However, they will learn a different way of thinking about fairness from looking through this pleasant book. This book emphasizes being fair by following the Golden Rule. Various examples are given on each page on how to be fair in each situation illustrated. Hand-drawn pictures help the reader to get the author's point. Readers will see how they can be fair in the situations they face each day. Teachers will like using this book in their classroom to discuss how others should be treated. Parents will enjoy teaching their young ones about fairness as well. This title is part of the "Way to Be!" series. 2006, Picture Window Books, Ages 5 to 9.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-These books offer character education with a new twist: they include activities that young children can actually do. The first book explains that taking action like picking up trash and planting flowers are ways to be a good citizen. Next, the author suggests that giving back found money and keeping an eye on your sister even when playing with friends are ways to indicate trustworthiness. Responsible and Fair follow the same approach. The simple, nonpreachy texts and bright acrylic illustrations in crayon colors demonstrate how to be fair, trustworthy, a good citizen, and responsible. Worthy additions for libraries needing this type of material.-Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
