I Can Do Anything If I Put My Mind To It: Developing Determination and Persistence

Many parents have told us that their children are more receptive to learning a lesson from someone else rather than you, or another person in “authority.” If your child is one who needs to hear advice from an outside source, I Can Do Anything If I Put My Mind to it is a book you should consider for your young child. The books touches on a variety of lessons and skills including determination, persistence, practicing, setting goals, problem-solving, asking for help, helping others, goal planning and more. These are relevant themes for young children and are something that they can carry with them through to adulthood. The book itself is easy to read and understand. It utilizes big letters, basic words and is also visually pleasing with colorful illustrations on every page and just the right amount of white space on each page. Parents appreciated the included glossary with the definitions of some of the bigger words the book uses as well as questions to foster dialogue between you and your child. Invariably, testers felt that in this book you are going to find situations that are current and relevant to something going on in your child’s life. Having it handy to refer to is something parents felt would be helpful and recommended that others give it a look.

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
