Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
In this inspiriting offering, motivational teacher Sean Covey uses seven stories to teach kids seven essential habits that lead to happiness. These deceptively simple fables can enhance every aspect of a child's life.
Children's Literature - Charles E. Kreinbucher
To develop the theme of seven habits, Sean Covey has created a fantastic seven-chapter storybook for parents and children. Each of the chapters is an independent story that can be read separately, but later chapters build on earlier ones. Reading is a social activity, and this book would be a strong choice for parents and children to share during reading times. The author states three main purposes: to illustrate the power of living according to principle and character, to develop a common language between parents, teachers and children, and to help them apply the concepts to themselves through the characters. The book begins with an introduction of the characters that appear in all seven chapters or stories. One story, entitled "Bored, Bored, Bored" highlights the "habit" of being proactive and taking charge of one's happiness. Each story ends with a "Parent's Corner," in which the author points out ways that the story relates to him—and maybe to the reader—to make a personal connection. There are also discussion questions for parents to use to monitor understanding, as well as suggestions for taking "baby steps" for action. Reviewer: Charles E. Kreinbucher

    Good for Children and Adults Alike!

    I loved reading this book. I do not have children, but I can see the importance of teaching these principles to a young person, cementing core values in them early. However, I think adults could benefit as well! The storylines relate to the kids, and the "Parents Corner" which explains each of the 7 habits are good reminders to parents to be good examples in the process of teaching the habits. I certainly learned from this book.

    Seen this in action

    This is an excellent book for teaching kids life skills that will benefit them throughout their life. I have seen this in action at A.B. Combs Elementary in N.C. We are bringing these habits to our students.

    Delightful

    I was so glad to see that Sean Covey had written a book for children on the 7 Habits.
    The characters are such fun and it is beautifully illustrated. The map of the village is very inviting. I shared a copy with my grandson and he wanted it read again and again. The characters teach important lessons in a way that relates to children. Thank you. I have bought a copy for all the younger children in my life. I used Stephen Covey's book with groups for years. I never liked the title, but the concepts are spot on.
