5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for kids and parents May 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Such a great book for kids and adults to read together!! Joy Berry has a wonderful way of bringing things to a kids level to help them understand things better. Sometimes as an adult we forget kids see and process the world differently than us.

Beautifully illustrated to help kids pay attention while learning valuable life lessons! The Winning Skills books are great for preteens and parents who need to learn how to talk to them.

This series is wonderful for any home or classroom! I want them for he community center where I work!! I am also thrilled they are being made available as ebooks!!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's never to early to start a great habit January 14, 2014
By Kristen
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is geared towards kids and teens but as I shared it with our kids, the book reminded me to be a good example on how to not save everything and that being organized is less stressful. The illustrations were good. They say it only takes 30 days to make a habit. After a thorough cleaning and organizing of our house, kids bedrooms included, life became less stressful. Instead of taking a Saturday to clean the kids rooms, they spent a few minutes each day and put things away. Sure, we all slip now and then and don't put things away or just take a break but its so much easier to do it now instead of later.

2.0 out of 5 stars best for young students December 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This information might be helpful for children and college students, but for adults who are used to paying bills and working with paper, this book is too simplistic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good July 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is a pretty good book for the younger high schooler. I think that there could be some more graphics and suggestions for how to declutter, sorting into keep/get rid of guidelines, memoirs/keepsakes etc... Otherwise goo book!

More About the Author

Joy Berry is a highly successful, pioneering educator and child development specialist. She is also the bestselling author of Joy Berry books for children with more than 250 titles and 85 million copies of her books sold. Joy Berry's message has always been the same: Empower children by helping them become responsible so they can have the control over the lives that they want and need.

Simply put, Joy Berry knows and understands children.

As an administrator and educator, childcare provider, recreation and camp director, and teacher's aide, Joy began her public school career teaching the second, third, fourth, and fifth grades. She supplemented her teacher's salary by establishing and maintaining quality after-school and summer programs.

Dismayed by the politics and bureaucracy that often plagues public education, Joy decided to begin her own school. She created a highly acclaimed preschool and daycare center. Several years later, she created a second preschool and daycare center that grew into one of the top three infant-through-early-elementary private schools in Southern California.

Joy's experience led her to conclude that in addition to academic subjects, children need to learn life skills which traditional education could not provide. The light bulb went on when she was asked to talk to a boy who was flunking out of school. She visited the boy at his house, and what she found was astonishing. Located in the back yard there was a tree house that spanned three trees. The structure was home to The Tree House Club--a popular neighborhood group put together and managed by the boy. Under his very capable leadership, the club members participated in a plethora of innovative, profitable, moneymaking projects. Although not successful in school, this boy was running a business while keeping track of its earnings, expenses, and profits using a comprehensive bookkeeping system.

She joined The Tree House Club to better understand kids. While a member, she discovered who children really are and what they really want and need to learn. And so together, Joy and the boy began teaching classes on practical subjects such as money management and time management. Joy discovered that the materials needed to teach children living skills were non-existent and she began filling the void by creating and developing materials that speak directly to children about everyday life issues.

Embarking on a lifetime mission to help children, Joy spoke out about modifying conventional perceptions and traditional approaches to education. She left the school system and began writing books, music, television and radio programs, and other supplemental materials that teach children about life skills.

"Children should be 100% responsible for all of their choices and decisions by the time they are 12 years of age. Parents need to encourage their children to make as many choices as possible as early in their lives as possible", says Joy Berry.

Joy's understanding of children and her pragmatic approach to educating and empowering children, has given rise to one of the most extensive juvenile product lines in the world.

Joy is a frequent media guest and speaker. She has been on many national television shows, and has been featured in national magazines and newspapers. She has spoken at book publishing, library, toy and bookseller associations in the US and abroad. She also speaks at national education and parent/ teacher's associations.

Joy Berry has a lifetime teaching credential as well as an administrative credential. She holds advanced degrees in Human Development and Education.
