I recommend that everyone get the book! It’s a winner. Thank you so much Kyri for writing this book. On Monday, August 18th, my grandson, Jaelen, age 11 , who is in middle school, came home after school, in trouble for talking, the next day, August, 19th, that morning I told him to stay focused & stay out of trouble. Well, he came home in trouble again, this time he got in trouble for talking in line and pushing a fellow student, he said the student jumped the line. Upon him coming home after school and me reading what the teacher wrote, I made him read your book, ‘Simon the Self-Control Seal’,he read it in 5 seconds, I knew he had just speedily rushed through the book so, when my other grandson, Jorden, age 4, came home from kindergarten, we sat down together and I read the book to them and every time in the book it would say, “Stop, think, and breathe and make the right choice!” I would make them say it out loud. Ok, day 3 – Wednesday, August 20th, Jaelen came home from school with a look of surprise on his face saying, “granny it works!” He told me he kept the words in the book on his mind, “Stop, think, and breathe and make the right choice!” When different situations arose during the day it helped him to stay focused and make the right choice. So Thursday passed ~ all is well, and thank God it’s Friday, school day is over and done and ALL IS WELL Even Jorden has memorized the verse. Thanks again and keep up the good work.
