Publisher's Description

Young people need guidance from caring adults to build strong, positive character traits—but they can also build their own. This book by the best-selling author of The Kid’s Guide to Social Action invites children and teens to explore and practice honesty, kindness, empathy, integrity, tolerance, patience, respect, and more.

Quotations and background information set the stage. Dilemmas challenge readers to think about, discuss, and debate positive traits. Activities invite them to explore what they stand for at school, at home, and in their communities. True stories profile real kids who exemplify positive traits; resources point the way toward character-building books, organizations, programs, and Web sites.

    This is a good book with a lot of potential, but I found it too advanced for my Sunday School class of 12 year olds. I will put it away for about 2 years and expect it to be a much beter fit at that time.

    I have started through this book with my 2 daughters that are 16yrs. old. I am very impressed with the amount of good, solid imformation for each character trait. This book would be great for a group as it has many suggested activities that could be fun and educational at the same time. Thank you for the wonderful support.
