Let’s Talk About Book Review For Children

My granddaughter, ‘Lil Moomette is a frequent visitor here after daycare. I often babysit for her at night when here parents have social commitments.

I like to keep her routine the same as when she’s home, so if I have to put her to bed, we’ll ready a story book together.

Joy Berry:  Pioneering Educator, Author and Child Development Expert

Recently I received a wonderful set of books to review from the childrens book author, Joy Berry.

As a teacher, mother, stepmother, adoptive parent and grandparent, Joy Berry understands the struggles children and parents face. You may not be familiar with the writings Joy Berry, however you may be familiar with her classic books.  She also shares her knowledge on her blog.

For over 30 years, these books have been helping parents and children deal with childhood issues. Joy Berry has sold over 85 million books and influenced generations of children.

Joy Berry Classics are broken down into six  series, starting with Teach Me About for toddlers and going up to Winning Skills for tweens.

  • Teach Me About, for Ages 1-3
  • Let’s Talk About, for Ages 4-5
  • Help Me Be Good, for Ages 5-7
  • A Fun and Easy Way, for Ages 7-10
  • Winning Skills, for Ages 11-12
  • Good Answers to Tough Questions, for Ages 6-12

One evening we read the book “Help Me Be Good About Being Rude” from the series “Let’s Talk About.” ‘Lil Moomette who has a birthday in October, attends daycare with another little girl her age.  Having had two girls of my own, girls will of course be girls, and Moomette has had her share of experience in “time out.”

I was really impressed with the examples that were giving in this book, and Moomette definitely understood as we read the book together that being rude … is not a good thing.

Now when I pick her up from daycare, I’ll ask her if she was rude to anybody that day.  She understands and will tell me either yes, or no. Joy Berry’s books empower children to help them learn for themselves.

The books are of a high-quality weight paper stock, and each comes accompanied by an entertaining CD.

The author states:

“Children need to be taught from the beginning of their lives that the more responsibility a person assumes for his or her life, the more control he or she will have over his or her life. In order for children to acquire the control they so desperately want and need, they need to learn the information and skills that will allow them to become more responsible.”

This is a well written and beautifully illustrated series for any parent, grandparent or daycare provider to have on hand and makes magnificent gift ideas for grandchildren.  The wonderful thing about these materials is that they really work.
