"Small defines respect, "caring how a person feels," and provides several examples illustrating the concept. Teams high-five at the end of a game, a young girl sets the table for her family, and people remove hats before singing the "Star-Spangled Banner" at sporting events. Each scenario is illustrated with a colorful, double-page spread. Examples focus on common home and school situations, and include showing respect to oneself by keeping clean, eating healthy foods, and getting plenty of rest. Appended with a bibliography and Web links, this book, as well as others in the new Way to Be! series, makes a good springboard for class discussion about values." - Booklist

"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
