    Book details

THE BOOK OF KID is an illustrated compilation of over a hundred tips (and hashtags) for parents straight from the minds of third-graders. Described as “heartfelt and surprising” and “heartbreakingly sweet and sobering,” THE BOOK OF KID is one class’s answer to the question: if you could tell your parents anything, what would you say?

"A great reminder for parents of kids of all ages: Kids are taking notes every time we swear, check our phones compulsively, or say something negative about someone else. This book is an inspiration to be the best role models that we can be. Moreover, this advice from children to parents mirrors what research shows is best for them; sometimes kids really do know best!"--Christine Carter, author of Raising Happiness: 10 Simple Steps for More Joyful Kids and Happier Parents "The Book of Kid is evidence that kids hear and see and know more than we sometimes give them credit for. This book is chocked full of sound advice from kids to parents, advice that will help us be our best selves and also the parents our kids need. Read this book and then go play, listen, hug and challenge your kids. They're begging for it!"--Kate Hopper, founder of Motherhood & Words & author of Ready for Air: A Journey Through Premature Motherhood and Use Your Words: A Writing Guide for Mothers"This little book has the potential to transform lives - if parents follow the sage advice in these pages, relationships can improve, children will thrive, and the benefits will radiate out into the world with positive repercussions for generations to come. I highly recommend this book for parents of young children everywhere."--Nina Lesowitz, co-author of the bestselling titles Living Life as a Thank You; What Would You Do if You Knew You Could Not Fail?; and The Grateful Life."If you don't want to wait until your child grows up to find out how you could have been a better parent, read this book of heartfelt and surprising third grade wisdom. These children know better than many adults what is really important. Their beautifully illustrated jewel of a book has a prominent place in the waiting room of my child psychology practice."--Lucinda Cummings, PhD, Licensed Psychologist"Listen to your children, Put down your phone, swear less, don't bad mouth family--easily the best parenting advice I've ever read, and straight out of the mouths of funny, honest, wise kids."--Ann Imig, founder of the national live storytelling series, video-sharing company, and acclaimed book LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER Ms. Diamond's class is a dynamic group of third graders whose hobbies range from boogie-boarding to ballet to basketball. They are experts in hieroglyphics, skateboarding, Minecraft, and raising chickens. They can tell you how to grow your imagination, how to write (and recover from) scary stories, and how to find the best flat rides at a carnival. Their favorite holidays are Halloween, Hanukkah, Christmas, and Day of the Dead. In addition to their regular studies, they tutor kindergartners in math basics. Some are student coaches at recess. In their classroom community circle, their no-holds-barred discussions cover difficult topics such as civil rights, immigrant deportation, grieving for a loved one, and learning to be strong, compassionate citizens. Many of their conversations culminate into works of art. Ms. Diamond's third graders have recited poetry for the Martin Luther King Oratorical Competition, sung at school assemblies, and made collages to remember those who died. THE BOOK OF KID is their second publication as a class.Ms. Diamond's third graders do not have a class mascot, but if they did, it would probably be the infamous tooting lizard, the Flatulesaurus.

    Out of the mouths of 3rd graders...I bought a copy of this book at a meeting of the Write On Mamas near San Francisco. Folks, the truth will make you laugh, squirm, and hurt a little (maybe more than a little). Take this dose of reality, put down the electronics and read this book with your kids. Talk about what might be missing in their lives (and maybe yours). My son pointed out the page that reads: "Get me a dog." Others are more poignant: "Who is more important? Me or the phone?" BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!!!Ms. Diamond asked her 3rd grade class to designate where the proceeds from this book will go: they selected (not their own) a different public school in Oakland. Ms. Diamond and her 3rd graders rock!

    The Book of Kid a book of parenting advice written by third graders. It's wonderful.It's very telling, what kids are noticing. Mostly they want us to put down our phones, hug them more, and let them have more freedom to explore and make mistakes.This is a great volume for children, parents, and grandparents to share.

    Loved it. Simple pieces of kid wisdom that actually make you step back and think about your own parenting. Kids love reading it too.

    This book is full of the sort of heart-felt 'kid' wisdom that shows the thoughtfulness our children are capable of, even at this young age. Enjoy, read and wipe a tear at their meaningful words. And hug those kids of all ages!
