Wonderfully written and beautifully illustrated it is a must for every family with young children. Fosters family discussions around the 7Habits that young children can learn and practice.

I loved reading this book. I do not have children, but I can see the importance of teaching these principles to a young person, cementing core values in them early. However, I think adults could benefit as well! The storylines relate to the kids, and the "Parents Corner" which explains each of the 7 habits are good reminders to parents to be good examples in the process of teaching the habits. I certainly learned from this book.

Great book to read to your child. I also read it to the class for parent/class reading day and the children loved the stories which they could relate to.

This is an excellent book for teaching kids life skills that will benefit them throughout their life. I have seen this in action at A.B. Combs Elementary in N.C. We are bringing these habits to our students.

I was so glad to see that Sean Covey had written a book for children on the 7 Habits. The characters are such fun and it is beautifully illustrated. The map of the village is very inviting. I shared a copy with my grandson and he wanted it read again and again. The characters teach important lessons in a way that relates to children. Thank you. I have bought a copy for all the younger children in my life. I used Stephen Covey's book with groups for years. I never liked the title, but the concepts are spot on.

I am upset to see your company taking advantage of there customers I saw a book online for 15.98. I checked amazon being a member I saw it there for 12.98 free shipping. so I went to your establishment and bought the book not looking at the price thinking I was paying 15.98 but to my surprise when I got home I looked at the receipt and paid 21.98 I called the manager to see if she could resolve the matter all she could do is say sorry and that I could return the item. I would hate to think that barnes & Noble would take advantage of there customers but I guess I am wrong at this point it's the principle to me and will give my complaint to everyone including an attorney to file a class action lawsuit so that all the customers in my situation will get a refund . I would like to speak to someone with the power of attorney to do what is right and an opportunity to make things right Milton

I got excited about this book the first time I found out it was developed. I had wished that the Covey people would put out a kid version. There it is! I am using it in my classroom, and I have found a very good response to the way the 7 habits are presented. It is on a level the students can digest better than the one addressed to teens. We shall see what evolves for the rest of this school year as a result. I am trying to impress upon my collegues to make this a school movement. We shall see. ZMaleki

I must say I was initially skeptical about seeing the "7 Habits of Highly Effective People" transitioned into a children's book. While I enjoy the 7 Habits and the principles and concepts taught in that book, I wasn't sure how well it would translate into something that young kids could grasp onto. I was pleasantly surprised.I read the book with my kids and they all really enjoyed it and have asked me to read various chapters to them again and again.The book is divided into a chapter for each of the habits. There are cute animal characters used to teach and represent the various habits and to work through situations that can be addressed by applying the habits. Each chapter is written in language appropriate and accessible to young kids and uses plot and story elements they can relate to. At the end of each chapter is a page with teaching guidelines for parents as well as some questions to ask and discuss with the kids. My kids, especially Julia, absolutely love responding to the various questions and coming up with solutions to problems.The artwork is great. The stories are fun. The questions and discussions are productive and insightful. I'm not sure yet how much influence this book will have on my kids and their behaviors and habits. But at the very least, it's a good influence that will hopefully rub off on them to some degree.****4 out of 5 stars
