What I love most about this book is that it gives simple ideas for infusing character education into every day. Barbara draws from her personal experience to explain why each character trait she writes about is important. The book details activities that will get students to think more deeply about character and begin to apply the skills to their daily lives. She provides suggested questions to go along with books and activities, as well as little ditties she has created and recommendations for additional resources to continue exploration. I highly recommend this book to any parent, teacher or counselor who is searching for practical activities to teach character education concepts and skills. My mind was running wild with new ideas for next school year as I was reading! No doubt it will be well-worn as I reference it through the years.
