School Library Journal - Carol S. Surges

"Big or small, near or far, this series offers motivation and ideas for readers interested in lending a hand. Opening the door for someone who needs help, setting the table , cleaning a bedroom, or playing with a toddler are all examples of volunteering. Suggestions on a larger scale like raising funds or sponsoring an event are included, but the ideas are always realistic for the intended audience and often family-centric. An opening section on why one should volunteer includes a checklist of five benefits and culminates with "have fun!" The rest of each volume looks at specific examples that build from routine, home-base, and completed quickly to those that are more complex, long-term, and far-reaching. For example, Animals begins with pets and pet choice before talking about wild and endangered animals. Environment include many simple reduce-reuse-recycle ideas beginning with composting, picking up litter, growing your own food, planting trees, and conserving water and electricity-all voluntarily. It goes on to suggest cleaning up a vacant lot, organizing a sponsored event dedicated to help a local environmental issue, or working on an awareness campaign for a worldwide problem like the destruction of rain forests. A concluding checklist includes a cautionary caption about safety. A large, full-color photo on each page mostly supports the text. Don’t look for details on "how-to" here; instead, offer these books to readers looking for inspiration, or for adults needing a fresh approach to some hands-on civics lessons. – Carol S.

"The format of these books contains large colorful pictures with captions which enhance the text. The brief chapters, written in simple language, have bold glossary words. The theme of helping others is carried out throughout each book. The book about animals demonstrates how to help animals that are in danger, and a chapter on encountering animals would prove very useful for children. This series would be a wonderful addition to books about the community. Bibliography. Glossary. Websites. Table of Contents. Index. Recommended. -- Marilyn Teicher, Library Media Specialist, PS 86x, Bronx, New York Library Media Connection Online Aug/Sept 2012; Vol. 31, No. 1" - Library Media Connection Online
