Educational Wisdoms for All Children. This book is a collection of “Educational Wisdoms” and guiding principles for all children in grades K – 5. Over the years, as parents and teachers, we have made great efforts to teach our children these wisdoms and principles. With some we have been successful and with others not as much so. This hands-on treasure will be a valuable tool to any parent, grandparent, teacher in the classroom, and especially home school parents who foster great one-on-one learning. In addition, young children as well as older children can learn much from this terrific book, which might help to inspire success, build personal development and more self-esteem at the childrens’ various levels of maturity. Still, this book can serve the older children as a self-help guide that can remind them to make good choices, inspire self-discipline, and reinforce their images of what success looks like. Finally, with parents helping to guide younger children to study this book of instructional wisdoms each day, and with each BEE character leading the way, they will quickly gain an understanding of the helpful concepts it shares. Success is imminent if these educational wisdoms are nurtured and practiced.
