    From Booklist ( /gp/feature.html/?docId=1000027801 ) ---------------------------------------------------- Reviewed with Cheri J. Meiners' Share and Take Turns. PreS-Gr. 1. From the Learning to Get Along series, these colorful books encourage children to learn social skills. In Listen an African American boy explains what listening means: keeping quiet, watching the person who talks, thinking about what is being said, and asking questions when he doesn't understand. He also talks about using those skills in the classroom and at home. Similarly, in Share a red-haired girl learns techniques for sharing, then shows how she shares and takes turns when playing at home with her sister and friends. Each book ends with the child feeling good about using his or her new skills. The bright line-and-wash illustrations feature multiracial groups of children engaged in familiar activities. The writing is purposeful, but it is also practical in approach and sensitive to the problems and feelings of young children. A good choice for teachers seeking books that reinforce familiar classroom messages. Carolyn Phelan Copyright © American Library Association.
