  • Joy Berry (born April 15, 1944) is an American writer and Child Development specialist. She has written over 250 self-help books for kids that have sold over 85 million copies, and is known in the juvenile publishing and media industries as the “Inventor of Self-Help Books for Kids.” According to Joy, “I began writing self-help books for kids in order to fill a void in both educational institutions as well as the marketplace. My goal was to provide step-by-step, easy to understand information that could help kids become responsible for themselves, responsible in their relationship with others, and responsible in the way in which they relate to their environment.” As a child developmentalist, educator, and parenting expert, Joy worked from 1978 through 1990 to compile the Joy Berry Classics, which is the only comprehensive collection of self-help books that exists for children birth through 13 years of age. Since 1990 she has continued to update and contemporize the books, and has incorporated the Living Skills concepts from the books into story-based cross-media products including TV programs. Her official website is In 2004, Amnesty International and the United Nations recruited Joy to translate the Convention on the Rights of the Child into a self-help book for kids with related educational materials called Mine and Yours. Soon after, the American Red Cross recruited Joy to write two self-help books for kids with related educational materials that addressed the subjects of Human Dignity as put forth in International Humanitarian Law and Peaceful Conflict Resolution as put forth in the Geneva Conventions. In 2013, the materials developed for Amnesty International, the United Nations, and the American Red Cross were updated and incorporated into a single edutainment program called Kids for Global Peace. The program features animated characters called The Junkroom Band and includes an interactive website, 36 two-minute music and dance television interstitials (that combine live action with animation), three electronic comic books, and three teachers guides that teach kids about Human Rights, Human Dignity, and Peaceful Conflict Resolution.- Joy Berry You can view the Kids for Global Peace interstitials at: (en)
