Gr 3–5—Turner aims to encourage civic-mindedness in children by exploring topics such as acting in an informed manner; being aware of the rules and laws of a given society and their purpose; understanding and promoting the common good; making decisions as a group; and learning to identify civic virtues. Colorful sidebars give examples of citizens in action, "Ciudadanos en acción." Various suggestions are given for ways children can also become civically active. The Spanish translation is flawless.
VERDICT As youth today encounter more and more vitriolic and uninformed discourse in their lives, this series is a timely reminder that civic awareness benefits all.
