Developing character in children takes time and practice. Teachers work hard to build good character in the students they teach. Engaging students in thought-provoking activities that focus on good character behavior helps them develop a sense of purpose and guides them in making the right choices in life. This series of 48 books focuses on developing Citizenship, Cooperation, Fairness, Honesty, Perseverance, Respect, Tolerance, and Responsibility. Each 24-page book focuses on a single character trait. The qualities that define that trait are developed through short plays, take-home assignments, role-playing simulations, journal writing, and self-reflection activities. In addition, each book includes the profile of a famous person whose life has served as a model of that particular character trait through his or her own actions and deeds. Throughout the series, activities that support the IRA, NCTE, and NCSS Standards have been identified.
