Lil’ Boy’s Steps to Goal Achievement: A Goal Setting Journal for Kids by Dr. April L. Jones is a useful tool to guide children in the basic ideas, processes and successes of setting and achieving goals. The author emphasizes how children can take an active role when it comes to setting their goals and learning techniques for pursuing them. The book also reinforces the underlying concepts of caring, community, and service when it comes to setting their goals and understanding the rules. Many adults do not understand the importance of having a mentor at an early age, and the book discusses mentoring at an early age as it is one of the key concepts of life success.
The journal approach is good as it will encourage children to write down their goals and brainstorm the steps they need to take to achieve their goals and become successful. The thought of having the concept revolving around Moses Jones Jr, the author’s father or the Lil’ Boy as he is known, makes the book appealing to young readers. The activities and exercises in the book are good for readers to contemplate and decide on what they want from life. The topic is relevant and the book will help many parents and their children on how to go about fulfilling their dreams and becoming achievers. The book is definitely a must-have in homes and in school libraries. Educators, teachers, mentors, and parents will be able to guide, encourage, and motivate children to set goals, follow rules, and have a positive attitude.
