Be Smart! Don't Start! Just Say No!
Children's Television Workshop, New York, NY.
This magazine-style publication was developed to help children and young adolescents say "No" to alcohol. Profusely illustrated with color photographs and other graphics, the guide includes a preview of the Jets' new music video; a question-and-answer section about drinking and alcoholic beverages; a set of reasons for not drinking; and a section in which athletes, television personalities, and rock music stars talk about drinking. Also included are the "Just Say No!" board game, letters from children across the country telling what they like to do, and suggestions for ways to have fun. The next section discusses what a child should do when he/she needs help. A short story about a girl who refuses to drink is given. Another section discusses the use of advertising to sell products and gives two examples of advertisement for readers to decipher. A game page, a set of news shorts, and a list of reading materials and organizations concerned with alcohol abuse conclude the guide. (NB)
