Reviews

School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

“Real-life topics, ranging from the specific (‘How can I make sure I don’t forget my band instrument?‘) to the general (’Why does everyone need a turn?’), are presented in a clear question-and-answer format that is instructive but not overly didactic. . . . A solid series dealing with important subjects for modern kids.” —School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

Natasha Phillips

“The informative text and full-color photos of kids navigating difficult life situations are great for teaching social skills. Educators can point to the children’s expressions in the photos and ask their students to identify what each child might be feeling. What a wonderful resource for teaching empathy!” –Natasha Phillips, MA, special education teacher and consultant for the Show Your Character series
