Synopsis

Now a national priority, character education is being implemented by schools and other public and private organizations across the United States. Whether you are establishing a character education program or looking for an effective way to teach your children the importance of values and good character, this book, loaded with nearly 300 resources, can help. Each of the 17 chapters focuses on a specific trait or virtue and identifies dozens of picture books, novels, biographies, and nonfiction titles that illustrate the trait and can be used as springboards to discussions. Introduced with a description, each chapter features annotations, cross-references to other traits, famous quotes, discussion starters, activity suggestions, and collaborative reading titles. An indispensable resource and reference guide, this book is essential for coaching young citizens in positive behavior.
