From the minute they wake up in the morning, most kids are far too busy dealing with schoolwork, their activities, and their responsibilities at home. In other words, they are busy doing what they are told. But what about what our kids aspire to do? Can we do more to expose our children to a full spectrum of possibilities beyond standardized tests, dance recitals, and taking care of Fido? Entrepreneur Bryan R. Johnson believes we can!


code 7 cover

Synopsis:

Life at Flint Hill Elementary School may seem normal, but seven friends soon find themselves on a path to crack the code for an epic life.  Whether they’re chasing their dreams on stage, searching for an elusive monster fish, or running a makeshift business out of a tree house, can these heroes find a way to work together to change their community?


Johnson wrote Code 7 because he believes we can help our upcoming generation take charge of their lives to better the world. Code 7 provides a roadmap for a diverse audience of children and their advocates to start early and make meaning in their lives today. Not only are the stories in Code7 engaging for children to read, but the book is also perfect for parents and educators to share with kids to address themes of: 

Young people making a difference / changing the world

Determining the values you want to live by 
Being empowered to follow your passions
Service learning and social entrepreneurship 
Identity, self-confidence, and self-esteem 


Review:

This book is aimed at kids in grades 2-6. Younger kids will benefit from family reading time, and older kids will be able to read its alone and leas the discussions. Parents can download a discussion guide from the website to start their kids thinking about how THEY will crack the code, and what their code word will be. Teaching character is never easy, but this book presents it and responsibility in ways that kids can not only understand, but better relate to. The end result is that your kids will quickly read and be ready to apply in their own lives!

After your kids read the book, they can share the code word  they decide to live by with others via the website, and pay it forward to those they know who are doing the same, to win  Challenge prizes. It's a book that will KEEP your kids thinking, doing, and CARING for others! And that is a book so worthwhile, as it is a life lesson in of itself! We highly recommend adding this book to your Summer reading list!
