These titles in the Spotlight on Civic Action series cover important topics not often addressed in informational books about civics. Accompanied by photos of political figures, children and adults from diverse backgrounds, and historical documents and reproductions, the short chapters focus on specific issues related to the broader topic. Civic Virtue briefly examines philosophical roots of civic virtue before highlighting such fundamentals as honesty, respect, and obeying laws and rules. Complimentary in content, the volumes conclude by asking readers to consider their role in these topics. Terrific building blocks for children to become educated, civics-minded citizens.

The development of the U.S. Constitution was influenced by tenets of a republican government. Civic virtue, or concern for the common good, guides how U.S. citizens go about living their daily lives. This book defines civic virtue and gives concrete examples of civic virtue in practice. Civic virtue requires citizens to put the common good ahead of their own personal desires to make sure that the republican government operates fairly for all citizens. The Constitution stresses the importance of the government existing for the people and being run by the people, which of course heavily relies upon the peoples' interpretation of Civic virtue.
