Each book in the series discusses a core value and explains what it is, why it is important, and how to develop this important quality in the world. An explanation of ‘values’ and why they are important is common to each title. Key words are bolded throughout, and can be found in the glossary. The strength of the series is in the active way the concepts are discussed–how to show these values in six simple ways with your family, friends, neighbours. Responsibility with possessions, not caring for your bicycle, has consequences and responsibility with people means reliability to do what was promised.
This series is bright and colourful with sophisticated values dealt with in direct and uncomplicated text. The subjects of the photographs amplify the text and provide great material for class discussions. While the language is simple, the photographs show primary aged children. Recommended.
