Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—In this series, children are introduced to four character traits. Each book begins with a definition of the featured trait. On each page, a situation shows its application. Andy finds a purse and gives it to the teacher; he is being honest. Students in school keep their eyes on their own test; they are being trustworthy. Nathan shares his toy with his best friend because he cares. And Kyle invites Sarah to play on his baseball team because he knows that she wants to play. The vivid acrylic illustrations make the presentations attractive and give continuity to each spread. Children will enjoy these simple offerings.—Ana Rodriguez, Tamarac Elementary School, FL

Heather was playing a game of checkers with Billy and was trustworthy when she did not cheat while Billy was away. Mathew keeps secrets and completes his chores, even when it is difficult to do so. Candace arrives home at the time she said she would. And Paul informs Mrs. Baker about the money that has fallen from her purse on the street. These and other characters are described as trustworthy people. "When you are trustworthy, people can count on you to do the right thing. Being trustworthy sometimes takes courage. It isn't always easy. But it is worth the work to have people trust you." Small uses examples that students can easily relate to, such as babysitting a relative instead of playing with friends or taking out the trash. Dual language teachers can use this text to reinforce students' comprehension of prepositions, simple present tense, subjunctive, and reflexive verbs in Spanish.
