Booklist Review

Gr. 4-6. Drug education units will get a boost from these readable introductions to three important topics. In Drinking and Driving, the author informs on drunk-driving laws, police testing procedures for drunkenness, and the effects of alcohol on the body. Hjelmeland also makes an important point: an individual may not display overt symptoms of being drunk yet may still have body alcohol levels in excess of legal limits.Drug testing remains a controversial issue, as Monroe's book makes clear. She describes the drug abuse that gave rise to large-scale testing--first by the military, then by various governmental agencies, and recently by private industry. Is it legal? Is it a violation of privacy? Does it help curb drug abuse? The arguments surrounding each of these questions get a brief airing here, with plenty of room for kids to consider the questions in their own minds.Crack & Cocaine explains the addictive nature of these popular drugs and offers supportive advice on how to avoid them, helping kids to "just say no" a little more easily. Some may be bothered by the photographs, several of which picture the drugs and their accompanying paraphernalia.
