5.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking for my 6 year old Nov. 28 2011
Format:Hardcover
My son who is 6 grasped onto this book and has had everyone who has come to visit read to him a chapter or two (how ever many they are willing to spend the time to read). He brings up the lessons while we are driving, as they occur to him and he lets his 10 year old sister know when she should look at situations differently. I'm very happy with the interest he is showing and I will read it to him over and over as long as he wants. They are good lessons communicated in situations he can relate to. I would recommend it to all children.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic! Dec 10 2009
Format:Hardcover
I have 2 boys that are 8 and 11. I thought my oldest may to too old for the book but he enjoyed it just as much as my 8 year old. The book contains characters they can identify with and the author made this story fun. It includes questions to discuss after which is awesome. Reading these stories with my boys before bed has been a joy.

Hard copy, that is more than my expectation. My daughter finished it the first day she got it. Some of the example is not that to the point though.

What a way to bring a family together. Share the book and its tips and work to become "happy". I wish it were translated; it would make it easier to use in our French language families.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never to early to start building good habits... Sept. 18 2008
By Tracy Foote - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Just like famous fables, children will learn subtle messages in these seven stories teaching good habits. A nice added benefit is the parent discussion at the end of each section which gives ideas on opening up conversations with children. On the same page are steps you can do to solve problems or promote the character trait in your child.

"I'm bored" which translates to, "Mom, entertain me" is one of my favorite issues in this book. Children need to take charge and figure out on their own that they alone actually have the ability to solve the boredom problem. If they realize they can solve the boredom problem, this will be the first step to realizing they are the key to solving any problem in their life.

There are 6 other issues: having a plan, work comes before play, everyone can win, listen before speaking, together is better, and balance is best. These are easy to demonstrate to young children using examples in your own household. Extracurricular activities and play dates do not take place without a plan. We need to clean our room (work) before playing, and so forth.

While they are all important, it's a nice touch that each character trait has a separate story so parents could choose to repeatedly read the story with the behavior they would like to develop or improve. I would definitely recommend this book for young children.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works!!! Oct. 27 2008

When I saw this book, I had to laugh.....another product trying to cash in on the success of the original (7 Habits of Highly Effective People). Except that I LOVE the original. So I bought it, expecting mediocre stories but an opportunity to discuss the 7 habits with my children.

To my surprise, the stories themselves are actually decent. On their own, I'd give them 3 stars. To rate the potential this book has to teach, though, I'd give it 5 stars.

Except that I LOVE the original. So I bought it, expecting mediocre stories but an opportunity to discuss the 7 habits with my children.

To my surprise, the stories themselves are actually decent. On their own, I'd give them 3 stars. To rate the potential this book has to teach, though, I'd give it 5 stars. Each habit has a story that illustrates it, a little tidbit for parents to read, questions to discuss with your child, and several suggestions on how a CHILD can implement that habit. The suggestions are great; I wouldn't have thought of many of them on my own.

We've been focusing on a habit a week. We read the story Sunday, discuss it, talk about some of the suggestions my kids would like to try, and then work on it over the week. My husband and I try to make a big deal of it every time we see one of the kids coming through. I'm amazed! Already, my 8 and 5 year-olds are going out of their way to be proactive and plan things out and just plain take responsibility for themselves. Not only that, they liked the stories enough to sneak the book away and read all seven of them on the first day.

I think the original 7 Habits is right on the mark, so I'm thrilled to find an age appropriate way to share it with my children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! April 12 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
It's a great book.
I have three kids 6, 4 and 3 years old, I started reading/describing the characters and the whole place where each story happens...
They learned every character description and recognize each place of 7 oaks immediatly and love to show me where the stories are happening...
It's incredible how their little minds remember the habits already taught when they apply on their daily life. Every night they ask me to read it...
Excuse me for my " not so good" english... but spanish is my language.
I really recommend it

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for parents and kids April 8 2009
By MauryaL - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
If you are familiar with the 7 Habits type books, this one fits right in the family...if you are not familiar with them, this is an AWESOME book for great ideas in how to approach some of the challenges we parents have with kids.

This is a book to read to children, and is laid out in a story format and at the end of each chapter there is a "parent's corner" which then presents discussion points for parents to have with kids and ideas how to take each subject and make improvements.

I have recommended this to a number of my friends.

Additionally, it is written simply enough that my 7 year old can read it to herself and has taken it to show and tell to share with her friends...She loves how the stories are written and she totally gets 'the lesson' inside each chapter.

You will not be disappointed by this book.

Cheers, MR

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for all young children Sept. 23 2008
By James J. Lynch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
A beatifully written and illustrated book that while capturing a young child's attention will be quietly teaching time tested principles. Every parent, grandparent and elementary school classroom should have a copy. Learning the principles at an early age will lead to greater success later in life and this starts the teaching of the principles in the truly formative years.
