Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Sportsmanship is one of 18 in a series about "Character Education" developed by the author in consultation with a noted professor who promotes character education nationally. These short, colorful books are designed to be used by and for early elementary students. Once reserved for families and churches, the responsibility for character education has been squarely placed on public and private education. It is not without controversy. This book about sportsmanship defines the term in various settings, such as sportsmanship at home, at school, and with your friends, and then personifies it by giving an example of a human being that has exhibited these qualities. As each facet of sportsmanship is defined on a page, a small area at the bottom of the page gives hints about how to practice the quality, for instance, how to congratulate someone who has done a good job. The short book goes on to provide a hands-on activity, a glossary of terms, an index and resources for further study. Full-page color photos enhance the book's meaning. Perfect for classroom or club study.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-These simple books define the title word; provide examples of the trait; and tell how to practice it at home, in school, and in the community. Full-page color photos depict children of various ethnicities, and some have disabilities. One spread in each title is devoted to a famous person-for example, Olympic medalist Wilma Rudolph in Sportsmanship. Words that may be new to readers are defined on the bottom of the page, and a few others are found in a short glossary. Each book includes a hands-on activity. Some students might read these titles on their own, but it is more likely that counselors and teachers will use them as a way to promote the characteristics.-Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
