Using loads of case studies from her extensive files, Anne highlights the following:
This title deals with emotionally difficult issues in a clear, anecdotal manner, and has an over-riding theme of positivity. There is a strong message of hope and reconciliation with the emphasis on the power of choice and the importance of mind-set change in order to move on.
Scientific facts: The first six years write the script for a child's school life. There is a direct correlation between a child's self-image and his ability to learn easily at school. This book is a practical map to help parents, teachers and caregivers keep a watchful eye on and enhance child's development - his body (physical), his heart (emotional and social) and his brain (cognitive/intellectual).
It is not simply a school-readiness check-list, but a map that activates a blinking red light when a developmental problem starts to grow and makes the green light shine brightly when the skills discussed here are ticked off, one after the other. Red lights don't mean that all is lost; they mean simply that skilled professionals could be called on to help overcome developmental hiccups and make sure that the young child has a strong base. Ready To Learn, Ready For School includes loads of practical tips and advice as well as a glossary of terms used on report cards and tests to help parents make sense of them.
This book is the ideal companion to Play Learn Know and will help you to experience your child's formative years as a resoundingly successful adventure!
April 2017 marks 20 years since Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Poor Dad first made waves in the Personal Finance arena.
It has since become the #1 Personal Finance book of all time... translated into dozens of languages and sold around the world.
Rich Dad Poor Dad is Robert's story of growing up with two dads — his real father and the father of his best friend, his rich dad — and the ways in which both men shaped his thoughts about money and investing. The book explodes the myth that you need to earn a high income to be rich and explains the difference between working for money and having your money work for you.
20 Years... 20/20 Hindsight
In the 20th Anniversary Edition of this classic, Robert offers an update on what we’ve seen over the past 20 years related to money, investing, and the global economy. Sidebars throughout the book will take readers “fast forward” — from 1997 to today — as Robert assesses how the principles taught by his rich dad have stood the test of time.
In many ways, the messages of Rich Dad Poor Dad, messages that were criticized and challenged two decades ago, are more meaningful, relevant and important today than they were 20 years ago.
As always, readers can expect that Robert will be candid, insightful... and continue to rock more than a few boats in his retrospective.
Will there be a few surprises? Count on it.
Rich Dad Poor Dad...

• Challenges the belief that your house is an asset
• Shows parents why they can't rely on the school system to teach their kids about money
