Children's Literature - Alexandria LaFayeA selection from "The Conflict Resolution Library," this book explores the various issues surrounding the act of stealing. Exploring issues like temptation, guilt, and the differences between stealing and sharing, the easy-to-read format makes this book accessible to kids but it also minimizes the complexity of these issues. Perhaps this book is best used as a tool for laying the groundwork for a more in-depth discussion of stealing with parents or in the classroom. While covering a lot of important issues, the book also provides pronunciation keys, a glossary of terms, and an index making the text easy to understand and to turn to as a reference. She also incorporates short stories that dramatize the issues she discusses, thereby putting a human element into her discussion. The photographs, taken from various sources, emphasize this human element.
