"Boring, boring, boring" - the first 3 words of the book got their attention. We read the book several times during my visit. Great life lessons. Only gripe- I didn't like the focus on who's "fault" is that. I crossed out that word and rewrote- who's responsibility is that? I think that's a better life lesson.
The stories feature characters who are used throughout to book to deliver specific message. The first story "I'm bored: is a child's explanation of how boredom is a personal choice, kids shouldn't depend on others to entertain them. It encourages initiative and being responsible for your own happiness. The other six stories include having a plan, work comes before play, everyone can win, listen before speaking, together is better, and balance is best. My daughter looked forward to what the gang was up to next and how they would fix it.
There are discussion questions at the end of each story.
The stories feature repeating characters and seem especially geared to grades 1-4.
There's no heavy handed advice or sense of minimizing a kid's concerns in this...self-awareness and making good decisions is the goal. I really enjoy this with my own son. The stories stand up to repeated readings, and each time you go through it you can emphasize a different point without seeming to be lecturing or prying.

They always want me to read it again and again. Also it's good for us adults to introduce or maintain the important life habits
