    Countless attempts have been made to illustrate the abstract concept "respect" through stories.  I know because I've purchased many of them for the elementary library where I was librarian.  I've used several of those books for story times. Somehow most stories lacked something.  Children seem to understand being "nice" to those they like, but following through and choosing to find something to like about all people, or treating fairly even those you don't really like is harder to carry out. Perhaps that is why I requested a review copy of Stephanie Robinson's book The Scotties Learn about Respect.  I wanted to see how this latest book faired in explaining the elusive concept respect. 

    When Archie, one of the Scottie puppies, digs up the tomato plants after being asked by Mom (the human) to stay out of the garden, Mom becomes sad.  Archie is admonished by Flea that he did not respect Mom's wishes.  Bewildered, Archie asks what respect is.  Flea replies that respect is form of caring.  If Archie had followed Mom's wishes instead of his own desire to roll in the dirt, he would have been showing a form of respect.

    This is a gentle book with illustrations to match.  Both the author and illustrator were lovers of Golden Books when young, and this book has that flavor.  Again, the lesson about respect centers around characters who already know each other and love each other, but the story itself is a quiet, heartwarming one.  I received a copy of this title from Ambassador International for review purposes.

    Children learn the lesson of respect through a cute story about

    Children learn the lesson of respect through a cute story about three Scottish Terriers: Archie, Flea, and Bonnie. After Archie destroys Mom’s garden, Flea scolds him about his lack of respect for Mom. Archie doesn’t know what respect means, so Flea explains it.
    Archie trots over to Mom and apologizes. Mom understands Archie is sorry and forgives him. The next day, he helps Mom replant the tomatoes he destroyed, and all is well.
    Exemplary illustrations demonstrate the possibility of the lesson learned without words.
    Young readers will enjoy this tale following the dogs from page to page.
