Joy Berry Classic Children's Books

Joy Berry understands the struggles children and parents face today. You probably haven’t heard of Joy Berry, but you may be familiar with her classic books. For over 30 years, these books have been helping parents and children deal with childhood issues. Joy Berry has sold over 85 million books and influenced generations of children.

Joy Berry Classics are broken down into six series, starting with Teach Me About for toddlers and going up to Winning Skills for tweens.

Teach Me About, for Ages 1-3
Let’s Talk About, for Ages 4-5
Help Me Be Good, for Ages 5-7

A Fun and Easy Way, for Ages 7-10
Winning Skills, for Ages 11-12

Good Answers to Tough Questions, for Ages 6-12

Now for the first time, Joy Berry’s books will be available all from one publisher, Joy Berry Enterprises, and for sale online at Updated and newly designed, the books are classics in every sense of the word.

The message is timeless. Children will always need potty training, will always whine, fight with their siblings and need to cope with emotions such as anger and the challenge of doing well in school. These topics are only a sampling of the issues the Joy Berry Classics address, but demonstrate why Joy’s books are relevant and necessary today.

Joy Berry’s books empower children to help them learn for themselves. Joy states, “Children need to be taught from the beginning of their lives that the more responsibility a person assumes for his or her life, the more control he or she will have over his or her life. In order for children to acquire the control they so desperately want and need, they need to learn the information and skills that will allow them to become more responsible.”

And the wonderful thing about these materials is that they really work. Millions of parents and educators have used these books to help children learn responsible behavior, deal with their emotions and cope with trauma.

We were thrilled to receive several books from this great series to review! We received You Can . . . Get Over IT!, Disasters, Death, Keep Kids Safe, and A Fun and Easy Way to Earn an Allowance.

A Fun and Easy Way to Earn an Allowance Kit

This kit has been a great encouragement for Ethan! We weren't sure how to go about the whole allowance issue and it's a topic that is mentioned quite often by our ten year old. This kit information and resources needed to start the allowance journey at your house! If your child is ready to start earning money for chores then we highly recommend this helpful kit!
