Yvonne Bleam's book, A to Z of Being the Best Leader You Can Be, is an excellent resource for teachers and parents to use with elementary aged children. As a homeschooling mom, I personally have incorporated this book into our weekly curriculum. This book promotes strong leadership skills and teaches moral life lessons, to value the uniqueness of each individual. Yvonne uses creativity in writing many colorful scenarios that children experience on a daily basis at school and extra- curricular activities. The alphabetical organization of leadership traits makes it fun and easy for kids to remember throughout the school year. It is a great priority to emphasize a child's leadership qualities at an early age so they can be confident in making wise choices throughout life. Yvonne has a heart to do this very thing in not just her book alone, but in her own life as well, being an inspiration to those around her. -- Christina Fidler, homeschooling educator and mother of three
Dr. Bleam's book is geared to the most imperative leaders - those of tomorrow! By introducing character education and leadership concepts to the younger generation, this book opens the door for future leaders to invite leadership ideas into their world through stories, discussions, and activities in a way they can and will embrace. This creative book is a powerful opportunity for lessons that will extend beyond, and reach into, your child's future potential. -- Kathleen Patterson, Ph.D., Professor & Doctoral Program Director, Strategic Leadership Program, Regent University
