I just received these lovely books from Papersalt and love everything about them, the paper is nicer than standard cardstock, the colors are gorgeous, the graphics creative and the messages are spot on. Wow, imagine how I would gush if they paid me to write this (which they most assuredly did not). I did receive four books to review being a girl, being a boy,take the stairs and dinner table manners. I had a tough time deciding because the messages are so lovely and delivered in such a creative and simple way. Positive, helpful and sweet – the books are a pleasure to handle and you can write in them, too.
My family liked the taking the stairs and dinner table manners because there was more concrete information (Eat like you have hours) but I liked them all. I probably should have asked for the teen books if I wanted a better family review. Maybe that will be a future post!
Papersalt produces these books to help families get moving, get talking, and be positive. All of the messages and affirmations are wonderful and accessible for even the youngest children) and even families with older kids need a gentle reminder or two…our family needs this one from time to time.

Making the transition into high school can be difficult for some girls. High school is an experience that you go into feeling all grown up and come out of only to reflect on just how much you’ve learned and how much you still have yet to learn. Being at a new school around older kids has added pressures for “fitting in.” For me, I wanted to look like all the other girls who came to school with a full face of makeup and wearing six-inch long Abercrombie skirts in the winter. The whole idea seemed silly to me but I couldn’t help but take on a “if you can’t beat’em, join’em” approach. This is an excerpt – to read the rest of this post go to Papersalt.com
