Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

K-Gr 1 Easy enough for first graders to read independently, these books have large print and one sentence at the bottom of each spread. The vocabulary is simple, and most spreads cite positive examples of good character within the areas denoted by the titles. Leader , for example, says, "When you help others with a problem...you are being a good leader." The colorful cartoon illustrations show boys and girls of various ethnicities, some with disabilities, and all with strange, prominent mouths. Some of the pictures are a bit ambiguous, but the lack of total illustrative clarity might be an asset, leaving room for interpretive discussion. An "Activity" page asks how a child in a picture above the question is exhibiting the relevant character trait. These titles would serve for early-reading practice or as points of departure for character-education discussions, but they are not essential purchases.-Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, NJ
