THE CLASSIC STATUS OF THE LET'S TALK ABOUT BOOKS

The LET’S TALK ABOUT books are a part of the collection of kids’ self-help books and other materials called THE JOY BERRY CLASSICS.

The purpose of the JOY BERRY CLASSICS is to help children, from the beginning of their lives through pre-adolescence, become responsible:

for themselves,
in their relationships with others, and
in the way that they relate to the things in their environment.

The classic look and feel of the LET’S TALK ABOUT books is due to the restoration of the vintage artwork from the original publications that is now featured in the current LET’S TALK ABOUT books.

THE PURPOSE

The 22 LET’S TALK ABOUT books help young children deal with the early childhood emotions and attitudes that can prevent them from becoming responsible.

If not understood and handled properly, early childhood emotions and attitudes can be painful and can hinder young children from becoming responsible. Sharing the LET’S TALK ABOUT books with a child can be the first important step to overcoming obstacles that can prevent the child from becoming responsible. The LET’S TALK ABOUT books help young children understand and respond in positive ways to normal feelings and attitudes that can otherwise be uncomfortable and difficult to handle.

THE GUIDELINES FOR USE

In order to derive the maximum benefits from the LET’S TALK ABOUT books it is recommended that adults use the books in the following ways:

Phase One
Adult Resource: The adult reads the books for information, insights, and encouragement.

Phase Two
Adult-Child Activity: The adult uses the books with the child and encourages the child to question or comment on the subject matter.

Phase Three
Independent Activity: The child is encouraged to use the books independently of the adult for entertainment and to reinforce the subject matter.

Phase Four
Reference Material: The books are placed in the child’s library along with other resource materials and used whenever specific situations need to be addressed.
