Personally, I think these books are fantastic. Eva’s attitude has changed since reading them. She has started putting a lot more effort into everything. Challenges no longer end in tears since Eva read the Clever Tykes books.
Eva is stopping to think of ways she can solve problems rather than getting upset and feeling defeated. Definitely a sign the books have helped instil positive enterprising behaviour.
A few weeks after reading the books I am continuing to see subtle changes in their thinking. Less frustration when something goes wrong. Not being quite so defeatist if they can’t do something the first time.
We try to teach the kids by modelling the behaviours we would like them to display and Willow, Cody and Cho are fantastic role models. Each story shows them facing a problem or difficulty and finding an enterprising solution.
I can see these books have the potential to really help create a young generation of go-getters and change-makers! I seriously cannot recommend these stories enough. Parents and educators – check them out!
The books are very well written and provide awesome role-models who children can relate to, and encourage thinking outside the box and creativity. They genuinely empower children!
