I'll Never Get All of That Done!: A Story about Planning and Prioritizing (Executive FUNction Book 8) Kindle Edition
Blake's baseball team is doing a bake sale fundraiser. He just can't wait for his mom to whip up a batch of her famous chocolate chip cookies! That is, until Mom reminds Blake that it is HIS fundraiser, so he needs to help. Blake has a to-do list that's just too long. How can his parents and teachers expect him to finish his homework, clean his room AND bake cookies for the baseball bake sale? Don't they know there's something urgent he has to do now - like play video games?!
When Mom encourages Blake to follow the 3 Ps - prioritizing, planning and posting a reminder of what needs to be done - he's unimpressed. But as his responsibilities pile up and his deadlines quickly approach, he has to figure out what needs doing now. Can following Mom's advice and using the 3 Ps really make a difference? School counselor and award-winning author Bryan Smith reveals the answer in the relatable story about the power of preparation and planning. It's the eighth story from the author's Executive FUNction picture book series. Tips for parents and educators to help reinforce the message of time-management and self-reliance in children are included.

I read this book last night and I thought it had some really good points. Even as an adult I still need to remind myself to plan ahead to get everything done, so this is great for kids to learn at a young age. I thought the story was easy to follow and the layout was good. I liked the end where he passed on what he had learned to another. The images are nice and I liked the addition at the end of the book for learning points for parents/teachers too --Donna Maguire, NetGalley reviewer
This is a really cute and useful book for school age children to encourage them with ways to cope with the stresses of life in general e.g with chores, hobbies, homework, fun etc. by showing them how they can plan, prioritize and posting visual notes/reminders/lists to get things done in order of priority. --Natalie Horman, NetGalley reviewer --This text refers to the paperback edition.

A few weeks later, he finds himself behind in his schoolwork and once again, he’s overwhelmed at all he has to do. His teacher reminds him of the steps he needs to take – Prioritize, Plan, and Post. He follows the plan and gets his work done.
Now that Blake understands the steps, he is able to use them in getting his schoolwork done, finishing his household chores, and playing video games with his friends. He even teaches these steps to his coach!
Kids can easily become frustrated when they think they have too much to do in too little time. This book offers a helpful reminder for them that prioritizing, planning, and posting their organized list can keep them focused and able to complete the tasks at hand. I highly recommend I’ll Never Get All of That Done!.

Young elementary school aged children will see how Blake manages a bake sale, his chores, his schoolwork and more. Each time the "three Ps" come into play. Children who buy into this message will have a useful tool for getting their work done and not becoming completely overwhelmed. There is a section of tips for parents at the end of the book.
Many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for this title in exchange for an honest review. I am off to get organized now!
