Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
This book begins with definitions and examples of teamwork, respect for others, and self-respect and ends with a challenge to build your own character. Inserts give special information about Maya Lin, Bill and Melinda Gates, and Marjane Satrapi as people who respect others. Ten rules for team building are listed. Cheating, conflict, and slackers test the ability of the team to work. The creation of the Declaration of Independence for colonial America is an example of teamwork in history. African Americans, women, Latinos, and Native Americans formed groups to achieve respect through peaceful means. Athletes such as Michael Jordan rely on teamwork to win. Google illustrates successful teamwork in business. The International Space Station proves that people from around the world can work together. A person of character demonstrates respect for others and for our planet. Information about organizations that promote teamwork and respect such as Giraffe Heroes Project and Boy Scouts of America are listed. Photographs and inserts enliven the text. A glossary, bibliography, books and websites for further information, and an index are included. An introduction by consultants Madonna M. Murphy, Ph.D., and Sharon L. Banas, M.Ed., states that this book will "…correlate well with national social studies standards of learning." This is one of the "Character Education" series. Teachers and teens will find this book is an enlightening and helpful guide for building character. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman

Gr 6 Up

These well-written texts provide substantive advice on handling social issues. By combining examples from current celebrities and historical figures, the authors demonstrate how past problems have been solved and how some people have handled personal difficulties. The utilitarian book design includes photographs every two to three pages. Highlighted text boxes are also interspersed, but because they sometimes continue onto a second page, they break up the main narrative and can make it hard to follow for struggling readers. The information is well-researched and up-to-date, and each book includes an extensive bibliography. The volumes have a non-flashy, textbook-style appearance and will not attract teens on their own. Used as part of a character-education curriculum, however, they are solid resources.
