A Much-Needed Entertaining Lesson on Responsibility
KidVenture: Twelve Weeks To Midnight Blue is both a fun read and full of valuable lessons, according to this review by Lu Ann of Rockin' Book Reviews:
Twelve Weeks to Midnight Blue is not as mysterious as the title sounds. It is a much-needed, entertaining lesson on responsibility, a child viewing math as a tool in successful living, managing money, meeting goals, business concepts, working together and more. It s about a wise father and mother instilling in their children, important life lessons in a firm, yet loving way.
I particularly praise the author for the thought/discussion questions posted at the end of each chapter, encouraging the reader to absorb the dilemma and the learning lessons in his/her own life.
Children, older elementary age to young adults can enjoy and benefit from this book. It is a good book for parents/educators to use in teaching their youth.
The characters were very familiar and well defined. One felt he/she knew each one.
It can be hard sometimes as a parent to use challenges and setbacks as teachable moments for your kids, and to do so in a way that's both firm and loving. To let them fail and discover answers for themselves. The parents in the KidVenture: Twelve Weeks To Midnight Blue try to do just that and hopefully inspire others.
