From School Library Journal
Grade 1-4–Both slim books offer a few lines of text per spread with at least one colorful photo and highlighted facts throughout, e.g., Waiting and thinking before acting are good ways to practice patience. The authors discuss the featured quality with references to school, home, and the community, and offer examples of individuals who use these skills to better the lives of others. The books are illustrated with posed photos of youngsters who are generally the same age as the target audience. Teachers and parents may want to use these titles as discussion starters, but its not likely that children will pick them up on their own.–Laurel L.
