The Free Spirit "Adding Assets" Series for Kids Researchers at Search Institute have identified 40 good things that all kids need in their lives. Called Developmental Assets, they include a loving family, a caring neighborhood, self-esteem, and a commitment to learning. Requested by parents and teachers, supported by data, "Adding Assets" empowers kids ages 8–12 to build their own assets. Each book includes simple, meaningful, age-appropriate ideas kids can try at home, at school, in their community, in their congregation, and with their friends. We’re launching the series with the first four of eight planned books for children. The rest will follow later in 2005, along with supporting materials for parents and teachers.About the Author:
