This book should be mandatory reading for parents; in fact I think schools should have to give it out to them at Meet the Teacher Night before school starts to help them get prepared and give their kids a better chance at success.

As a parent I found this book not only easy to read and informative, which you would hope considering the subject matter, but what I truly loved is that it’s the kind of thing my daughter could go over herself as it’s not written just for the parent.

It has a Mary Poppins in the nursery kind of feel to it. Organization and cleaning up your bad habits are made fun so you want to read this.

It’s very short and there are areas I felt needed some more details but at the same time I could see how they are trying to be generalized and not too specific because it’s written for a large audience with a short attention span.

This should help empower your young kid to begin making decisions themselves, provide a sense of accomplishment and learn new ways to handle things that they will take with them as they get older. ( )

Get Organized Without Losing It by Janet S. Fox. Epiphany library section 10 D: Youth (gr. 6-8), Character Building/Service. Kids, do you have trouble getting organized? Is your locker a shocker? Is your backpack a black hole? Are you always in a rush on school mornings? Do you forget stuff you were meant to take to school? Do you have no real place to study at home? Do you waste time and regret it later on?
You are NOT alone! Most kids find the upper elementary and middle school grades more challenging – assignments are more difficult, there are more long-range projects, and in order to get A’s you have to study longer and harder than you did just a few years before. Middle school also means carrying all your stuff in a backpack, keeping your locker tidy, setting up a study space at home, and balancing after-school activities with study, relaxation, and sleep.
This book helps you deal with all this! It covers basic tools for getting organized, focusing on your classroom desk, backpack, school locker and bedroom. It tells how to organize your school paperwork. It discusses how to organize your time day-by-day and long-range. It describes how to set up a study area at home and how to get ready for school the night before so you arrive at school in a calm mood. It discusses making nutritious lunches, how to set up your notebooks, and even offers memory tips.
You can read this book quickly and put most of its suggestions into use the day you read them! You, your parents and your teachers will notice a huge difference in your ability to complete work on time, and don’t be surprised if your grades improve too! ( )
