Comments from Teachers

I absolutely ADORE this book! We all could use these thought-provoking pages in our lives. As a homeschool mom, this book is an absolute asset in your educational arsenal!!

Mr. Ball’s book has given the children of my child care site a platform to discuss in depth topics in which they typically would have little interest. Referencing positive historical figures has creatively opened the door for the children (ages 8 – 12) to relate and has encouraged them to share their own experiences when dealing with topics such as forgiveness, hope, and gratitude. 

The format of the book easily guides the teachers and encourages the class to participate in an interactive journey of social challenges and awareness. Mr. Ball has indeed created a book that offers so much more than ink on a page. HAVE YOU TALKED VALUES WITH YOUR KIDS? is an experience that allows children (and teachers) to recognize their own humanity and has given my students the opportunity to bond in a genuine and meaningful way.

HELLO! HERE ARE ADDITIONAL COMMENTS FROM OUR KIDDOS. They love our Thinker Thursdays driven by Mr. Ball’s book. I really like how this book is so organized and easy to comprehend. The questions are challenging and definitely force us to think outside the box. They reflect how our daily life is being pursued, and how we really think and treat those around us.
