KIRKUS REVIEW

Boring, repetitive books in the ""Drug-Free Kids"" series. A typical passage in You Can Say No. . .reads, ""You are a drug-free kid. You never use drugs. You are proud to be a drug-free kid."" What Are Drugs? defines drugs as ""something that changes the way the body and brain work,"" whereas medicines are a ""kind of drug a doctor gives you when you are sick."" Alcohol, nicotine, marijuana, cocaine, and crack are discussed; children are encouraged to avoid people who use drugs, seek help from loving adults, and keep a healthy body. Cheerful, upbeat illustrations, but of limited use. Glossaries; index.
