The 7 Habits of Happy Kids, by Sean Covey, is a children’s book based on the principles found in The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The characters in the book (Goob Bear, Jumper Rabbit, Lily Skunk, Sammy Squirrel, Sophie Squirrel, Pokey Porcupine, Tagalong Allie, and Ernie the worm) are featured in seven stories that teach lessons to illustrate each principle. The stories are engaging and accompanied by fun illustrations (Stacy Curtis). We like that the stories’ lessons are very evident and life like.
This is a book that can be read a story at a time as children think about each principle. A full page Parents’ Corner page is found at the conclusion of each story. It’s an informative page with a brief description, discussion questions, and Baby Steps (things to do that reinforce each principle). This is a great book to focus on character development while providing enjoyable, kid-friendly stories. We’d love to hear any feedback from you if you’ve read this book with your children!
