“Be proactive” with the 7 Oaks gang in this first picture book in the 7 Habits of Happy Kids series. Includes audio!
Pokey is getting teased by Biff because of his quills. At first, Pokey is upset, but soon he realizes that his quills make him who he is, and he would never want to change that!
Featuring the lovable characters of 7 Oaks, this ebook with audio addresses the first habit of happy kids: “Be Proactive.” This story encourages children to always be in control of their own life and not let others determine how they should feel.
Beginning a series of small books spun off from Covey's The 7 Habits of Happy Kids, this story demonstrates the first of the seven habits, "Be Proactive: You're in Charge," which is explained further in a "Parents' Corner." Pokey the Porcupine, who lives in the town of 7 Oaks, is picked on at school because of the quills on his back. Though some of Pokey's friends are supportive ("You're a porcupine you're supposed to have quills"), Pokey must learn to appreciate his unique qualities for himself. Pokey's story is a little thin, but the discussion questions may help concerned parents. Also available: When I Grow Up. Ages 2 6.

The book was good but I feel it was overpriced for the length.
