We really believe in giving your child a head start to learning and imagination through books. Books can also be a wonderful way to teach your child life lessons through story. We love the Joy Berry books to help teach your child a variety of lessons on:

  • Eating healthy meals
  • Bullying
  • Feeling Afraid
  • Lying
  • Tattling
  • Being Rude
  • And much more

Many of these books come with down-loadable music, printables, parenting tips and read alongs. If you are having a problem teaching your child a lesson or want to prevent certain issues from even starting, check out the Joy Books website. You never know what worlds and lessons a story can open for your child.

What books have you used to teach your child life lessons?

    I’ve used the bible to teach some easy lessons to my young children.

    I love the Mama Llama books–they deal with topics like the first day of pre-school and being polite at the store, etc…Good everyday lessons!

    My three year old LOVES all of his Joy Berry books. His favorites are the ones that talk about being bossy and being messy.

      That’s great Pattie. A child’s endorsement of the book is the best endorsement!

    I love books and I am always reviewing books on my blog, The Children’s Nook. I am currently reviewing the book, Confessions of a Former Bully, and I have to say this is a great resource for parents and teachers! It is written in a youthful style that allows you to read it with your kids or students. It gives great insight into the mind of a bully.

    I am excited about looking into the Joy Berry books. I use Love and Logic as much as possible parenting my children.
