17 Sep Teaching children life lessons
Parents are on the hunt for great ways of teaching children valuable life lessons. We made sure the Clever Tykes books were brimming with some of the most important life lessons a child can learn. We’ve put together a definitive list of the life lessons taught in the Clever Tykes books.
Life lessons for children
All of these life lessons are learned directly from one or more of Walk-it Willow, Code-it Cody and Change-it Cho. See if your children can tell which lesson is learned in which book!

Meaningful children’s books
It’s really important that children spend a lot of time reading; there are so many benefits. If we’re looking to maximise what children are learning and what characteristics they’re developing, we must ensure that they’re reading meaningful stories. There’s a reason why certain stories and fables stand the test of time – not only are they good stories, they pass on valuable knowledge and experiences through the characters in them.
There are more than likely a few more life lessons from the Clever Tykes books that even we have missed out! We’d love to hear some of the lessons your children have learned from the stories and which ones you think are the most valuable.
