The 7 Habits of Happy Kids by Sean Covey

Super busy over this last month; teaching Kindergarten Sunday School at my church, finishing up my last semester at ISU before student teaching, preparing for Christmas, and spending quality time with my family. BUT, I have still been reading!!! I am planning on doing a weekly post here on my blog about the books I have read rather than a daily post as I see my schedule becoming more intense these coming months. I would like to have a variety of posts through the week (lesson planning, student teaching, reflecting, what I wore, devotionals, meal planning, etc). 

Today, I read The 7 Habits of Happy Kids by Sean Covey. The school in which I will be completing my student teaching in is a Leader in Me School. I have begun reading both The 7 Habits of Effective People (again) and Leader in Me. These were gifted me when I visited my fifth-grade teacher team before Christmas Break. 
The book is a combination of seven stories, each one highlighting an example of the seven habits used in Stephen & Sean Covey's books. I like how the characters are relatable to primary grade children so that they are able to understand what it is like to have this principle in their life.
  1. Bored! Bored! Bored!: Habit #1 Be proactive
  2. Goob and the bug-collecting kit: Habit #2 Begin with the end in mind
  3. Pokey and the spelling test: Habit #3 Put first things first
  4. Lily plants a garden: Habit #4 Think win-win
  5. Jumper and the lost butterfly net: Habit #5 Seek first to understand, then to be understood
  6. Big bad badgers: Synergize
  7. Sleepy Sophie: Sharpen the saw

I was able to listen to the entire book in less than an hour, it would be easy to share one story at a time based on the habit in which you are teaching. The audible book was read by Sean Covey and included his children in the recording as well. 

I have a rating system I use for those books I have read and reviewed on my blog, you may check it out here. I have given this book five cups, I love this book a latte!
I read this book as a part of my #ReadtheRainbow Reading Challenge, inspired by Donalyn MillerMy goal is to read at least one children's literature book from various genres every weekday and share my thoughts here on my blog. Please feel free to subscribe or connect with me on social media to follow my journey through the books I read. Until next time ...
