Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

 2007 Distinguished Achievement Award
 Curriculum Package/Specialized Audience Instruction category
 —The Association of Educational Publishers
Children's Literature - Karen Werner
This title, a part of "The Adding Assets Series for Kids," includes four chapters that explore The Positive Identity Assets. Each of the four chapters— "Personal Power," "Self-Esteem," "Sense of Purpose," and "Positive View of Personal Future," encourages the reader to select an asset and follow the stories and examples in their everyday life. The stories are personal and give ideas about how each asset can be added to home, school, neighborhood, faith community, and with friends. Each asset begins with a story, then suggests ideas—such as Journaling—presents facts and a personal message about how the asset can affect the reader. Then the story concludes. This is a unique how-to book for children in grades three through six. There is a leader's guide available to build on all forty Developmental Assets. The forty Developmental Assets for Middle Childhood are from the Search Institute. Additional books describing and exploring the thirty-six other assets are available.
