Children's LiteratureEvery child should learn the qualities of a good citizen: being fair, respectful, trustworthy, caring, and responsible—all of which are titles in the "Way to Be!" series. This book addresses the very important characteristic of being responsible. The word responsibility, which might be a little hard for younger readers to understand, is clearly defined and illustrated by using common, everyday examples. John takes care of his dress clothes by avoiding a mud puddle, which makes him responsible. Patricia locks the gate so her dog cannot run away, which makes her responsible. Angie helps her little brother cross the street, which makes her responsible. These are all things with which a child can empathize, and emulate on their own at home. The last page includes an index as well as other resources for related reading. "Being Responsible" is a very valuable book to read together with your child. 2005, Picture Window Books, Ages 5 to 7.
