An excellent series of books having to do with unacceptable behaviour - why we do these things, how we can change, and the people who can help us. Three stories in each book pinpoint the problem in realistic ways, and there are good discussion questions. The importance of talking with someone trustworthy is emphasised. The illustrations, sensitively drawn, are multicultural and enhance the text. Could be used individually or with a class. Telephone numbers are listed at the end for organisations that can help children who need to talk.
