Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Wendy M. Smith-D'Arezzo
Geared toward children in the early to mid-elementary grades, Bad Habits gives five keys to breaking bad habits that involve our bodies: nail-biting, thumb-sucking, nose-picking, etc. The keys are first given by using a variety of puzzle types, acrostics, rhyming clues and picot-grams. Once the key is identified, the text continues by describing how each key can be used to break the chains of bad habits. Each page contains cartoonlike black-and-white drawings, or offset type with fancy borders, allowing for small amounts of text, to make it more accessible for younger readers. The illustrations depict boys and girls of indeterminate races. The first two pages are addressed to parents with some cautions as to when to seek medical assistance and when the advice in this book should not be used. The author explains that the book is not about willpower, but rather about using strategies to learn new habits that can then extinguish the old habits. For some children, this may be just the thing they need to move past that old habit. As with all types of self-help, the advice given here may not work for everyone. Reviewer: Wendy M. Smith-D'Arezzo
