Communication is the key.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1-Told in the first person, each rhyming story teaches a different lesson: about making better choices, communicating well, and having self-esteem. In the first title, Charlene becomes upset when her friend won't return a library book. She takes the problem to her teacher and all turns out well. In the second, a teacher doesn't give her class a clear explanation of the game "Telephone"; therefore, when the last child tells what she's heard, everyone laughs at her because it's so different from the original statement, and she feels foolish. It's unfortunate that it's the teacher who sets such a poor example. Now I See is the tale of a boy who is afraid to try something unfamiliar because he might fail. His teacher helps him understand that learning anything new takes time, patience, and practice. Each title, illustrated in large, clear watercolors, closes with a page of tips for grown-ups. Though these books might start a worthwhile discussion, they are patently didactic and the rhymes are often strained.
