When I was in the sixth grade my dad gave me the book "One Minute Manager" to read. The book is a great read, quick and to the point. It is basically about management communication in the workplace. Obviously, a sixth-grader doesn't manage much. Maybe some Barbie dolls, a collection of sparkly hair barrettes, and a set of Nancy Drew novels at the most. You could argue that sixth-graders aren't supposed to be focusing on self-improvement; they should focus on their geography test or their most recent issue of Cosmo Girl magazine. I didn't even have a real job at the time. But, that's just how I grew up.
