Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
How do you teach a young child to respect others and to respect himself? This is a question that teachers, church leaders and parents deal with every day. Because children are great mimics, the first and best way is to present this behavior in situations that they see. It is also important to have conversations with children about respect, about how they treat others, how they answer the phone, how to behave when eating at the table or with others, and how to respond when others treat them with disrespect. The idea is to help young readers arrive at their own answers by helping them to see the result of good decisions and bad decisions. One example is that of listening to others without interrupting. The author gives simple ideas about how to listen, then offers a game idea similar to the old "Gossip" game, where each person repeats a phrase that they have been told, then see how the phrase turns out with the last person. This emphasizes good listening skills to young readers in a way they can understand. This series "Positive Steps" is an excellent series for starting discussions within the family unit that will build positive self-esteem in young readers. The series of six books addresses feelings, having respect for others, caring for others, being honest, accepting differences in others and dealing with bullying. In a picture book format, using children of all ages, the author presents that feeling or behavior in an open and honest way and helps the reader to come to a satisfactory conclusion. Suggestions are made for role-play and talking points. An index, glossary and recommended readings page is included. Any time adults can help young children to understand their emotions and behaviors and let them know that it is all a part of growing up and being a part of family, good discussions will follow and positive images are left.

Children's Literature - Elizabeth Leis-Newman
The human body moves in amazing ways, whether it is the bones in the spine allowing one to bend forward, backward and sideways; the muscles in the face that allow one to smile; or how the ball and socket joint in a shoulder allows an arm to move. Morgan writes at an age-appropriate level for those at a grade 5 reading level, and the information presented provides an entry point for a lesson on the human body. The book's flaw: in a desire to not overload the young reader, information is occasionally over-simplified. For example, after finishing the chapter "Moving Without Thinking" the reader will believe that there are only sphincters in the bladder, exit of the stomach and esophagus, when there are dozens more in the body. An explanation in "Hinged at the Knees" touches on how the tendon at the back of the heel is called "the Achilles tendon" and says that Achilles was a Greek hero. It neglects mentioning how the phrase is often used to explain a weakness, based on how that was the only part of the Greek hero that was mortal. Other topics include the rib cage and pelvis, where bones meet and fit together and what happens when they break, the way hands work including an explanation of opposable thumbs, and nerves. Excellent diagrams and pictures create an easy-to-read reference book. A glossary and additional reading list are included. However, overall it is not as strong as other titles in Amicus' "How the Body Works" series. Reviewer: Elizabeth Leis-Newman
