age-appropriate chores + important life lessons
The Checklist: Character-Building Chores for a Fun, Productive Day
How you define helpfulness within your family is paramount to how your children will interpret responsibility and what it means to be a part of the team. Chores don't have to be difficult or disagreeable. Discover how work can be play in this delightful story of confidence, kindness and character-building.
With a playful, rhythmic cadence, The Checklist delivers life lessons in memorable, bite-sized messages teaching children how to think, not what to do.
Bold, bright and ultra impactful, this modern picture book is a must for any growing, home library. Chores are cool. Raising confident kids is, too!
Written by Ashley Kegley-Whitehead and illustrated by Monique Aimee.
THE DETAILS MATTER
- For the young and young at heart: Ideal for ages 3-to-10, though this family-friendly book is great for all ages. Research suggests that the best predictor of child success later in life is whether or not they participated in household tasks at a young age - particularly beginning at 3 and 4 years old.
- Quality materials: We use a protective hardback cover for added durability, protection and quality. Additional design features like an embossed title and spot UV add dimension and depth.
- Unique Sizing: This noteworthy 10 x 10 square shape is used far less frequently than either the portrait or landscape design, adding genuine uniqueness and balance that draws your eye into the center of each page.
- Sustainably Printed: All paper used in this book is a natural, recyclable product made from wood grown in well-managed forests.
This is exactly what I've been looking for. What a fun way to deliver important life lessons. Especially love the Big Dreams + Hard Work piece. The entire collection is great. Kudos!!
Love this book. It's a great departure from the old adage "because I said so" - instead, chores are naturally woven throughout the story as fun activities and responsibilities the family can do together.
These cards are great. We bought two sets! One for our family and one as a birthday gift. Great quality and important content. Highly recommend.
A great reminder that we need to pass down helpfulness to both our boys and girls. The packaging and content is so thoughtful and modern - a true show stopper.
This is EVERYTHING. The perfect way to introduce children to chores. Two thumbs up. Book, cards and even the fun puzzle was a nice touch!!
LOVE the beautiful illustrations and life lessons sprinkled throughout this book! Such an important message for our kiddos - thank you!
