The 7 Habits of Happy Kids

"The 7 Habits of Happy Kids," a picture book I illustrated launches today!

The book was written by the great and wonderful Sean Covey.

It was published by Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing.

For the Seven Oaks friends, there is always something to do. Whether they're singing along with Pokey Porcupine's harmonica or playing soccer with Jumper Rabbit, everyone is having fun and learning all sorts of things. These seven stories show how practicing the 7 Habits makes this possible for the whole Seven Oaks Community.

From learning how to take charge of their own lives to discovering how balance is best, the Seven Oaks friends have tons of adventures and find out how each and every kid can be a happy kid!

The book is also available as an audio book, you can listen to a clip by clicking here.

The characters of "The 7 Habits of Happy Kids" book were integrated into Franklin Covey's "The Leader in Me" program.
Take a look at this awesome set of posters for use in school classrooms:

And this absolutely amazing web site, "Student SCHOOLYARD," created using artwork from the book!
