Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“An excellent means of educating children about a wide variety of social situations and expectations.” —Mary Jane Weiss, Ph.D., Director, Douglass Developmental Disabilities Center, Rutgers University

 “A good choice for teachers seeking books that reinforce familiar classroom messages.” —Booklist

Learning Magazine’s Teacher’s Choice Award Finalist

School Library Journal
K-Gr 1-Two books aimed directly at issues that arise in the classroom and on the playground, presenting the social skills needed to address them and ideas and activities for parents and teachers to reinforce them. The titles could not be more didactic in tone and spirit; the greeting-card illustrations are determinedly multicultural and multiabled, bluntly repeating the lessons at hand. Sample dialogue: "I think about what I hear. Thinking helps me learn and remember" (from Listen). "I'm learning to make good choices. I'm learning to think about others" (from Share). It's unlikely that this kind of iteration actually motivates children. These books may be of some use in the classroom, but they are of doubtful value in a general collection.-Dona Ratterree, New York City Public Schools Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
