Bringing Out Their Best
By

Rating
Here are more than 60 tales that exemplify, support, and promote the strong values and character traits that we wish to instill in our youth today. They also support the character education that is being mandated in state after state throughout the country. Grouped into 12 sections based on specific values, such as love, perserverance, fairness, and cooperation (with a separate chapter on dealing with bullies), these tales have been passed down through the ages in diverse cultures and traditions from all over the world-from Japan and India to Greece, Scotland, Africa, and the Americas. There are folktales, fables, Zen Buddhist tales, stories from the Judeo Christian Bible-even true historic tales. At the end of each section, educator and storyteller Norma Livo offers activity ideas and suggestions for discussions pertinent to specific stories and values. In addition, there is an appendix of general activity ideas that can be used in character education.

Reviews

Some of these titles are good and some are not so good. Fortunately, Livo- an educator and storyteller for over 50 years- has written one that is very good....This reviewer, a public school teacher at a middle school where every Friday "homebase" period is dedicated, schoolwide, to "character education," will certainly be using some of the shorter stories for discussion on Friday mornings with her class."-Kliatt "[U]seful as a source of stories."-Territorial Tattler "[R]eadily usable to the elementary and early secondary levels it may also prove to be useful for communication scholars at multiple levels."-Texas Speech Communication Journal "For those educators that are looking for new material to use when teaching character education, this book will find a place on their resource shelf.
