To develop his or her character, a person must understand core virtues, care about them, and act upon them. The engaging Character Education set is designed to provide readers with the tools they need to cope with everyday social and emotional issues and build a strong foundation for honest and healthy interpersonal relationships. Each book covers the title issue—including respect for others, overcoming prejudice, and dealing with peer pressure—with subsequent chapters detailing true stories of both historical and everyday people who faced similar situations and how they dealt with them. The final chapter in each title guides readers to create change in their communities and highlights the values described. This unique set encourages middle and high school readers to become people of character, and is the perfect complement to schools' character education and history curricula.
