Product description


Every chapter offers a complete vignette from each fifth grader's point of view, and a satisfying conclusion. The last chapter brings all six characters together for one final tale. Readers will enjoy these stories involving a diverse group of likeable children who find themselves in funny (and most likely, familiar) situations. Educators and parents will appreciate the life lessons of caring, having a strong work ethic, and embracing teamwork that are so important during a child's formative years. A supplemental website provides a downloadable discussion guide and activity book that can be used to further enhance character education curricula. VERDICT Even if the book is purchased as a stand-alone title without using the website, it will be a suitable addition to any school library that is looking for short but fast-paced stories that reinforce pro-social behavior.—School Library Journal
