In the quest for school success—not to mention a happy home life—kids have a lot to juggle: schoolwork, friends, activities, chores, bedrooms, electronics, lockers, and desks. Get Organized Without Losing It provides friendly, entertaining help for kids who want to manage their tasks, time, and stuff—without going overboard or being totally obsessed.
Empower kids to:conquer clutter, prioritize tasks, master their devices (not the other way around) supercharge study skills, handle homework, prepare for tests, stop procrastinating and start enjoying less stress and more success. Tips, examples, lists, and steps make it doable; jokes and cartoons make it enjoyable.
This book should be mandatory reading for parents; in fact I think schools should have to give it out to them at Meet the Teacher Night before school starts to help them get prepared and give their kids a better chance at success.
As a parent I found this book not only easy to read and informative, which you would hope considering the subject matter, but what I truly loved is that it’s the kind of thing my daughter could go over herself as it’s not written just for the parent.
It has a Mary Poppins in the nursery kind of feel to it. Organization and cleaning up your bad habits are made fun so you want to read this.
It’s very short and there are areas I felt needed some more details but at the same time I could see how they are trying to be generalized and not too specific because it’s written for a large audience with a short attention span.
This should help empower your young kid to begin making decisions themselves, provide a sense of accomplishment and learn new ways to handle things that they will take with them as they get older.
Thank you to Netgalley and Free Spirit Publishing for allowing me to review this book.
