"This series examines qualities that would supplement a unit on character education such as respectfulness, responsibility, trustworthiness, fairness, caring, and citizenship. Each book identifies a specific characteristic and then depicts familiar scenarios where children demonstrate positive behaviorat home, school, and in the community. The last page has a small bibliography of books and Web sites, as well as an index. A concluding summary statement would be beneficial by suggesting additional situation where children could display character. The richly colored illustrations focus more on the concept rather than the detail. Occasionally, a picture contradicts a prior scenario; for example, in Being Reponsible, a child locks a gate confining her dog to the family yard, yet a subsequent drawing shows that same child standing at a bus stop with her brother and an unleashed dog. Altogether, these books provide valuable reinenforcement for character education units, and a classroom discussion could address any inconsistencies and extend concepts covered in each book. Recommended." - Library Media Connection

"These books offer character education with a new twist: they include activities that young children can actually do. The first book explains that taking action like picking up trash and planting flowers are ways to be a good citizen. Next, the author suggests that giving back found money and keeping an eye on your sister even when playing with friends are ways to indicate trustworthiness. Responsible and Fair follow the same approach. The simple, nonpreachy texts and bright acrylic illustrations in crayon colors demonstrate how to be fair, trustworthy, a good citizen, and responsible. Worthy additions for libraries needing this type of material." - School Library Journal
