Review:

Power Rangers, take a rest. Cartoons, television, and comic books for children are all more focused on violence than in the past. New Society Publishers offers a collection of stories that teach problem-solving, cooperation, and creative thinking about social issues such as tolerance, understanding other ethnic groups, and how to handle controversy diplomatically. The authors' introduction explains the difference that stories can make, as well as how to use storytelling as a model for patterning positive behavior. Combined with each story are creative activities, cooperative games, and related reading lists. This wise book is a must for every school library, every educator, and every home with children.

About the Author:

The editors are all dedicated, professional storytellers who believe that the chance for the survival of humanity in these difficult times will be improved by having stories which invite creative conflict resolution to grow in the heats of children. They are all from Massachusetts and part of the Stories for World Change Network, founded by Ed Brody.
