Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
With page-long readings for every day of the calendar year, this book tries to help teenagers learn how to improve themselves and the world around them. Each day's reading includes a quotation, a paragraph essay relating to the quote and an affirmation. Quotations are taken from a wide range of sources¾from music star Christina Aguilera to Buddha to the X Files. The readings are based on forty so-called "developmental assets" that research shows may form a strong foundation for successful living. The assets, developed by Search Institute of Minnesota, are grouped into eight categories, starting with Support Assets and including Family Support. Other key assets include Constructive Use of Time and Positive Values. Teens won't have to study the underpinning philosophy to benefit from the daily readings, which are pithy and thought provoking. 2001, Free Spirit Publishing, $10.95. Ages 12 up. Reviewer: Valerie O. Patterson
KLIATT
This book, filled with ideas to affirm teenagers' lives, obviously belongs on their personal bookshelves; but there is a place for it in YA libraries as well. Each day of the year has a page allotted to it, with a quote by someone (usually famous) followed by Espeland's brief text with an idea for the day that complements the quote. For example, on May 7th the quote is from Carol Burnett: "Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me." Espeland then writes: "If there's something you don't like about your life—your relationship with your family, your school performance, your group of friends, your job, the way you feel about yourself—what are you going to do about it? Whine, complain, blame other people, feel sorry for yourself, and hope that things will change? Or figure out how you can change them? What if you don't know where to start? Talk to an adult you respect—someone who seems like a good problem solver." Following this is the statement: "Today I'll take the first step toward making a positive change in my life." Each of the day's ideas for teens is based on the results of a study by the Search Institute, which identified the 40 specific "developmental assets" for teenagers that "seem to protect kids and teens from making choices that can hurt them." To return to the May 7th page—the idea for that day is linked to the asset "personal power." This self-help book will definitely appeal to those teens who like the notion of improving themselves and their lives. The format is easy to use; and the book's sturdy binding and durable cover and paper will keep it in good condition even after frequent use. KLIATT Codes: JS—Recommended forjunior and senior high school students. 2001, Free Spirit, 388p, indexes, 17cm, 00-052815, $10.95. Ages 13 to 18. Reviewer: Claire Rosser; March 2001 (Vol. 35 No. 2)
