Children's LiteratureFor middle school teachers, human development counselors, and the parents of teenagers, the O'Reilly Factor for Kids is a must. Kids, on the other hand, don't normally pick up this kind of book unless it is part of the curriculum or their parents have told them to read it. O'Reilly has addressed kids as the audience. The topics are relevant in today's world and no subject is taboo. Topics include stereotyping, bullies, sex, fake self esteem, sports, siblings, T.V., reading, hard work, health, teachers, money, drugs, and dealing with divorce and death. The opinions that O'Reilly gives are conservative. The format is compelling with quotes from kids, and excerpts from O'Reilly's own life. The clear bold-faced advice in each chapter makes good jumping off points for further discussions with children. The book is a page-turner. 2004, HarperCollins, Ages 12 up.
