Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
One in a series of books about character education designed for use by elementary students, these wonderfully written books define each character trait by providing various scenarios in which it applies. For instance, loyalty is defined overall but is also simply defined within the context of home, friends, school sports, community and so on. Full-color, one-page photos depict a variety of diverse children in similar situations to which the reader can relate. Each definition is broad, not preachy and is written in a way that easily sparks additional discussion or clarification. There is a hands-on activity included to promote family loyalty, as well as a glossary, index and sources for further study. Ideal for the classroom. 2003, Capstone Press,
— Meredith Kiger
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-These books first define an individual trait, explain what it means to exhibit it, and finally describe how youngsters can model this behavior. Each page of text faces a full-page, full-color photo of children demonstrating the appropriate action. Each title mentions a famous person who showed that trait, e.g., Walt Disney in Determination. That quality is defined as having willpower, not allowing your attention to move on to something else. In Leadership, Raatma states that "Leaders help people get work done together. But leadership never is about being bossy." Loyalty mentions keeping friends' secrets and sticking up for them when necessary. The examples take place in a variety of settings such as school and home, and in social interactions. "Hands On" activities are included. These titles could be used for character-development units.-Sheilah Kosco, Rapides Parish Library, Alexandria, LA Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
