    An inspiring book for ambitious children!

    I downloaded this book to read to my daughter, who absolutely loved the character Willow and her canine co-star Stomp. The story really got her thinking of ways in which she could earn a little bit more pocket money and the illustrations showed that it could be fun too! I think it’s really important to teach our children the value of hard-work and the rewards that come with it in these economic times, and this book does that wonderfully. Looking forward to seeing more books from this series in the future. 5 Stars!

    A great introduction to enterprise for young children in a fun, accessible way.

    I bought Walk-it Willow to read with my 7 year old son. It was a great read (for both of us) with simple but fun illustrations, short chapters, and a fab role model in the form of the young girl Willow.

    Some of the vocabulary used might be a little challenging for the younger end of the 6-11 age range, but I think it’s a great book to read together anyway as it certainly stimulates plenty of discussion. Touching on some of the basic skills (communication, and problem solving, as well as values such as honesty) in a fun, accessible way, the book also fundamentally introduces children to the idea of a work ethic and how with determination, hard work, taking a little responsibility, and doing a little bit of planning, things can work out well.

    I, and my son, are looking forward to the next book in the series and many more to come! Well done Clever Tykes.

    A fun and inventive way of teaching children key life lessons.

    I bought Walk-it Willow for my younger brother to encourage him to read more. He loved the story and couldn’t wait to read it each night, enjoying the detailed illustrations and learning more about Stomp and his canine friends. The book was incredibly inspiring and it was interesting to see how the story opened his mind towards thinking more responsibly about money and the value of hard work. He can’t wait to follow in Willow’s footsteps now and has begun thinking of fun ways he could earn his own pocket money, as he eagerly awaits the next book in the series. I would definitely recommend this book to others with little ones between the ages of 6 – 11 years old.

    Wonderful Willow

    A charming book, wonderfully written and illustrated ! After reading about Willow and stomp, you feel as if they are somehow connected to your own life stories, especially washing the reluctant dog !! Thoroughly recommend this book. A pleasure to read to the children.

    Full of key messages.

    As a parent and life coach for children I found this book to be easy to read and full of lovely messages that children can take from it. It touched on taking responsibility, problem solving, admitting mistakes and also the work it takes to run a small business. Willow is entertaining but very human. A lovely story that I will now share with my youngest son.

    :

    The message encourages the reader to think about and create opportunities for themselves, which I really loved as my eldest Clayton is a little obsessed with pocket money right now. To spark his little imagination about how he could possibly create more money from his actions is an exciting prospect for him.

    The books were thoroughly enjoyed by my 7 year old. As we discussed the books once they were finished he made note of their ability to solve problems, and in a calm and logical way, may I add.

    I particularly enjoyed that Walk It Willow used her initiative to take something she enjoyed (walking dogs) and turned it into her own little business. An essential lesson for us all. Follow your passions and work out how to turn that into a service people want to use.

    As a parent of a impressionable 7 year old, I was really pleased to be able to give her these books to read. Being a fluent reader, she’s more than capable of reading these books alone, which she did.

    What I love the most about all of the books is that to adults, the messages are quite obvious but to the target audience, the messages are perhaps less obvious. Yet, the messages still get very much absorbed and in my opinion, these stores are therefore as inspirational as they aim to be.

    My favourite out of the set of 3 (and our 7 year old’s favourite too!) is Walk-it Willow.

I am a huge advocate of the entrepreneurial messages and characteristics that you are driving. I think it is a fantastic idea to instil the idea of entrepreneurship into children from a young age. This is a great way to open children up to the idea of not always following conventional paths and giving them the belief and confidence from an early age to pursue their own creative business ideas and ventures.

“The Clever Tykes series are such a wonderful way to introduce ‘enterprise’ to children from a young age – I can’t recommend them highly enough, and strongly urge parents to read along with their child as there is no doubt the stories will stimulate lots of questions and interest!”
