Praise for Be Positive:
“More than ever before, children today need a foundation of strong emotional skills to guide their choices in life. These books focus on positive thinking and assertive, kind behavior that can bolster children’s mental health, their relationships, and their performance in school. An exciting tool for empowering children to live their best lives.”—Sean Covey, best-selling author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens and The 7 Habits of Happy Kids
“One of the first volumes in the Being the Best Me! series, this picture book features an upbeat, constructive boy as he goes through his day and explains his view of the world . . . As Meiners’s previous series, Learning to Get Along, has shown, there’s a ready audience for simple picture books that communicate values to young children.”—Booklist
“These books are simply written and will empower students to turn around bad days. Affirming statements . . . are accompanied by large, cheerful, illustrations that are perfect for prompting discussion about how the scene reflects the writing and whether similar examples can be found in students’ lives. The books conclude with numerous questions parents and teachers can ask to encourage additional reflection as well as worthwhile hands-on activities to further emphasize positive thinking and foster self-confidence.”—School Library Journal
“Easy reads with child-friendly illustrations and easy-to-understand examples of real-life situations.”—Skipping Stones: A Multicultural Children's Magazine
