Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Surely needed...I heartily applaud this important series.”—Jay A. Monson, Ph.D., Professor of Elementary Education, Utah State University

Children's Literature
One in a series of books designed to teach social skills to young students, this edition focuses on the purpose for and value of following school rules. Illustrated in crisp primary colors that portray diverse children in a variety of social situations, the book stresses the importance of rules in promoting the mental, physical and social well-being of young children. While the word respect is frequently used in the book, it is never truly defined as treating others the way you want to be treated which results in a somewhat dogmatic tone to the text. For teachers, there are pages of activities and interactive games to further extend the message of the book. Overall, it is a child-friendly method for reinforcing the all important social skills on which schools are having to spend increasing amounts of time. 2005, Free Spirit Publishing, Ages 4 to 7.
—Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.
