Two closed-captioned, educational DVDs from Learning ZoneXpress are ideal for showing to young people in grades 4 through 10. "Character: Self-Esteem Basics" (1571757538, 12 min.) teaches young adults the importance of healthy self-esteem and why how we see ourselves impacts how we are so heavily, along with tips for improving one's own self-esteem. "Character: Communication Basics" (157175752X, 16 min.) includes tips for effective verbal communication, as well as advice from professional actors concerning the importance of body language and nonverbal communication. Additional information about how to use nonthreatening "I" messages instead of an excess of accusatory speech, the skill of active listening, and how to effectively communicate through technological venues. Both are top picks for school library collections and homeroom viewing, especially in today's modern era when good social skills (which require both good communication and healthy-self-esteem) are more invaluable than ever.
