K-Gr 2-This series emphasizes compromise, hard work, patience, and the importance of considering others' points of view and provides tools and exercises for honing social skills. Through the simple writing, bullet points, information boxes, and full-color photos, readers see realistic examples of kids in different situations making the choice to incorporate positive thinking when facing everyday situations, such as persevering despite setbacks and disagreeing with friends. A "What Would You Do?" section guides children into thinking about solutions, and a "Character Quiz" at the end of each book allows kids to put skills to use. A glossary with corresponding photos from earlier in the book helps build vocabulary. VERDICT A solid introduction to conflict resolution and communication. © Copyright 2015.
