Do I Have To?: Kids Talk About Responsibility
by Nancy Loewen (Author) & Omarr Wesley (Illustrator).
Age Range: 5 - 11 years.
A fun way to teach kids how to be more responsible. Parents will love the wry, ironic sense of humor (meant for them) and kids will love the humorous and yet practical, down-to-earth advice. It is in the form of a 13-year-old girl (who is an advice columnist similar to "Dear Abby") answering letters and giving advice to younger children. The various letters cover such topics as taking care of pets; "forgetting" to do one's homework; getting along better with friends; overscheduling afterschool activities; messy bedrooms; helping sad friends; taking proper care of our toys; etc. And the funny multiple choice quiz at the end will be sure to bring a smile as it further teaches us how to be more responsible.
