Being Responsible: A Book about Responsibility by Mary SmallI would read this book aloud to preschool or kindergartners that are learning about being responsible. I really liked this book and the way it teaches kids to be responsible. It is also a good discussion book to talk to kids about, for example you could ask children if they have ever worn their helmet when riding a bike and tell them, Good job, thats an example of being responsible. Kids would love knowing that their being responsible and knowing theyre big boys and big girls. You could also ask kids if they have other examples of being responsible. It would be good at the beginning of the year because there are some examples relating to school so thats what they should do in their classroom.
Being Responsible: A Book About Responsibility
Explains many different ways that children can be responsible and show responsibility. Each book identifies a specific characteristic and then depicts familiar scenarios where children demonstrate positive behaviorat home, school, and in the community. The last page has a small bibliography of books and Web sites, as well as an index. A concluding summary statement would be beneficial by suggesting additional situation where children could display character. The richly colored illustrations focus more on the concept rather than the detail. Occasionally, a picture contradicts a prior scenario; for example, in Being Reponsible, a child locks a gate confining her dog to the family yard, yet a subsequent drawing shows that same child standing at a bus stop with her brother and an unleashed dog. Altogether, these books provide valuable reinenforcement for character education units, and a classroom discussion could address any inconsistencies and extend concepts covered in each book.

Mamoo Kids asked me for a list of books to help kids become more independent. That got me thinking … can books for kids teach kids about responsibility? Why not? It will help start the discussion and that might lead to better remembering which might lead to being more responsible! We are also using chores and allowance to get kids to be more responsible as well as to help around the house. We pay their age each week for doing a chore.
