by James "Bud" Bottoms. Much like learning the alphabet,
children should be exposed to the formal education of ethics at a
very early age to help them socialize in appropriate and respectful
ways. Childhood is a time when these future citizens should acquire
the skills and attitudes that result in respect and proper decorum.
This is also a workbook designed to incorporate basic skills such
as reading, writing, and spelling into the childs development
of ethical principles. The whimsical cartoons and rhymes not only
define the word but encourage the reader to think about that word.
This is followed with a question which asks the student to think and
to express the meaning and application of each word. The cartoons
may be colored and enhanced by the child, serving as a reinforcing
reminder of the ethics being described.
Kid Ethics will help develop thoughtful, respectful,
and caring citizens. We use ethics every day, all of our lives. That's
why one of the best features of this book is that it encourages the
whole family to participate in these essential values.
At a time when all of us may doubt the value and ethics of our society,
this book offers hope that a new generation of children will learn
to live their lives by the rules of decency and civility. Kid
Ethics is aimed at helping children develop character; but in
a real way, it can help all of us be better human beings.

taken. If all parents gave these books to their children, we would
have a much more civilized society. Thank you for doing this for

the Caterpillar Got Its Wings", by Jana Garnett is a
story that has a literal and figurative message. The literal story
of how caterpillars become butterflies serves as a tool to facilitate
dialogue about feelings between parent/teacher and child/student.
The figurative message is open to interpretation and may apply to
many important life transitions or just change in general. The objectives
encourage us to acknowledge the function and potency of our feelings.

them and maintain both intrapersonal and interpersonal health. In
fact, we are transformed by these behaviors!
