This is one of Joy Berry's "Survival Series for Kids" books. Even though it was written so many years ago, the material is not dated and the illustrations by Bartholomew are very good. This book explains why grades exist and how your child can use them to his/her benefit. Very good ideas and suggestions in short chunks.
This series of books (I am posting them all) was very helpful both to me and our daughters. The Survival Series for Kids is in cartoon format and has valuable steps to teach your boy or girl how to do what you are asking them to do.
I loved this series of books and my kids did too! This is one of 28 in the series, I bought 10 of them when my kids were small....and wished then that I could have bought them all. (Found 17 more in another bookcase after I wrote this review on the first 10 I posted....# 28 is probably somewhere.)
I do highly recommend these books - they teach the title concepts in a very entertaining concrete step-by-step way.
