School Library Journal
A combination of concise text, plenty of white space, effective use of color, and crisp photography makes this series appealing and easy to read. After a definition of and discussion of the topic at hand ("What is Caring?"), real-world scenarios are described. Fairness, for example, may be an issue at home, during school, on the playground, or in sports. Children are asked to think beyond the text and bring in ideas from their own experiences. The color photographs show a multiethnic group of boys and girls. Boys wash dishes as well as play outside; girls shovel snow, play soccer, and cook. A "Find Out More" section at the end of each book lists two additional titles and two Web sites. Children will be able to understand the advice in these books and apply it to their own lives.
