Booked for success
"It’s hard to try new things—for adults as well as children. It’s even harder to stay the course when something is more difficult than we thought it would be, or when things don’t work out the way we hoped. Yet flexibility and perseverance are essential to success in all areas of life, at all ages and stages."
That's what it says on the book profile of this Free Spirit Publishing product. Responsible and mature adults don't become that way out of the blue; formation, though life-long, starts in early childhood. And books are a great supplementary means to forming the character of children.
Try and Stick with it is great on its own, though it's also sold as part of the Learning to Get Along books -- a set of 10 titles, among which are Share and Take Turns, When I Feel Afraid, and Know and Follow Rules.
