No Excuses! How What You Say Can Get in Your Way

Overview

    Terrible. Why do kids need self-help books anyway?

    This treacle is on the same rung of the literary ladder as the Berenstain Bears series of didactic, moralizing sermons disguised as children's books. In the words of Mr. Potter, this is no better than "sentimental hogwash". What's next? Sending toddlers to AA and elementary-aged school children to The Forum? See, the way literature works (literature that stands the test of time, at any rate) is this: you tell a good story (poem, play, novel, short story, etc.); you tell it well; you bring truthfulness, sincerity, and -- hopefully -- inspiration to the story; and you allow readers to embark on an imaginary journey that brings them to some new-found or forgotten insight into themselves, the world, or living. Or not -- the decision is theirs! And that goes for children's books as well. But if you insist on sending them on your magical carpet ride of "how to achieve their dreams" or "how to be okay", why don't you send the little guys to church, 12-step groups, or elitist nursery schools that prepare "them for success", and leave their imaginations to those who know what they're doing? E.g, the poets, artists, musicians, and other dreamers?

    Very sad...

    A Book with a Good Moral

    A great book to show children how to investigate and think through decisions they may want to make. This is a good story to reinforce skills on how to make thoughtful decisions. Dr. Dyer has written an excellent book for children.

    Helps Children Feel Empowered

    This book with its colorful illustrations and relatable story helps children look past common excuses that stifle dreams and reinforces the message that anything they want to achieve is possible so long as the stay true to themselves and follow their happiness. My six year old son enjoys this story because it resonates with what he already declares for himself --- I CAN DO WHATEVER I WANT!

    Great journey of believing in yourself

    I think this book is great for young people, actually all ages. We live in an time where everyone seems to be telling us what to do and what path is best. It very scary to follow your heArt but this young man did! Great journey.

    No excuses not to read this book

    Every visit with my three-year-old granddaughter involves reading this book. It's about a young boy who discovers how to overcome "excuses" to become what he really wants to be.
