Joy Berry Books for Kids
**Congrats to the winner Karen Perea of this contest!!
Joy Berry has a line of books that are fantastic for children, and of all ages. Most of them come with CD’s and they start as young as ages 1-3 years. I love these kind of books. They teach your child when they don’t even realize they are being taught. Books and pictures stay with them, when those situations come up….then they might remember back to what they heard their mom read to them at bedtime. I had several different sets of books for my boys when they were young. I can tell you that they would remember them if someone asked them today.
Here are the series in the Joy Berry line:
Teach me About – Ages 1-3
Let’s Talk About – Ages 4-5
Help Me Be Good – Ages 5-7
A Fun and Easy Way – Ages 7-10
Winning Skills – Ages 11-12
Good Answers to Tough Questions – Ages 6-12
We got the Clean Your room book. Now what mom doesn’t want that for her 9 year old triplets? They are 9 years old and although they are pretty good about cleaning their room, they picked up some great tips. My step daughter was funny, as she read the book she saw where Joy is teaching the kids to sort things in their room (like I do as an Organizer) and she said, “Hey..this is like you do it!” LOL
I was a little disappointed that the CD did not read along with the book. There are a couple of songs and some brief discussion on the CD. I had to admit I don’t think we got the value out of the CD for my kids. But, song is a great way for kids to remember and learn things, so I think the value in having songs related to the material is great.
But the book is fantastic. I love how it gives step by step instructions with verbal text to explain. My kids used to be confused when I would say top sheet and fitted sheet when explaining how to strip their beds or make them. It is all done in a colorful fun way that will interest kids too.
