In elementary schools across the country, teachers are expected to provide at least five minutes of character education each day. This book makes it easy to meet that requirement in a meaningful way. It includes 180 character vignettes - five for each of the 36 weeks in the school year - grouped by trait. Each features kids in real-life situations making decisions that reflect their character. Each is short enough to be read aloud; all can be used as starting points for discussion, to support an existing character education program, or as the basis for an independent program. An excellent tool for the classroom or the character-conscious home.

Anne D. Mather has taught middle school, high school, and church school and has written other books for children and teens. Anne and Louise B. Weldon are also the authors of the character-building books The Cat at the Door and The Cats in the Classroom.
