This book doesn't call it study skills. The author talks about the secrets for doing better in school. The secrets are presented by adorable puppets, an entertaining story, music, and lesson plans. The lessons help with learning left from right, improving vocabulary, correcting reversals, and more. The secrets for doing better in school can be applied to any subject. This is very appealing to children. The author's website, Learning Abilities Books, has more lesson plans and other information.

Remember the story of The Little Engine That Could? It is like the power of positive thinking for little kids. Well, here is a new book that goes a step beyond 'I think I can' and shows K-3 kids (and the rest of us) how we can. We need to use strategies. Specific strategies for doing better in school are in the book. It has a cute story about making lemonade when life hands you lemons. It is NOT a flipant 'shape up kid' attitude. It shows compassion and understanding. It is a very good motivational book with lesson plans and activities and discussion questions(suggested answers are provided). It shows kids and us how to make lemonade by using strategies which memory experts use. There is even an activity suggesting letting kids make real lemonade from scratch, taste it without sugar, then see the difference when sugar is added. This brings pro-active behavior down to their level of understanding in a concrete manner.

This little book was really more than I expected. The encouraging story brings to a child's level the skills for success in school. I love the way it made my child see what she can do to learn how to do better in school. You just have to read it to understand what I mean. I'm not saying this very well, I guess. I thought it would be just a cute story but it is a lot more than that.

At last, I've found a great book for helping my second graders understand the concept of taking responsibility for some of their own learning. They are learning how to learn and how to remember what they have learned instead of whining and giving up. On the author's website, www.gate.net/~labooks, there is even more information about this and all sorts of other useful information for parents and teachers.
