Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Patricia Timbrook
Since teaching basic values to young children has been a hot menu item for the past several years, authors Schiller and Bryant serve up sixteen truths-such as courage, fairness, and pride-with spice and substance. Each chapter begins with a familiar nursery rhyme and a line drawing to whet the reader's appetite for what's ahead. Lots of questions that demand thoughtful answers are asked. Parents, teachers, and kids are given ideas as to how to act out the value being taught in a tasty and fun manner. With its "appetizers, entrees, and desserts," this book helps satisfy the hunger of the values-oriented teacher.
