“…this is an impressive, handy resource. It suggests solutions for easily recognizable difficulties, such as aggression or shyness, as well as more subtle ones, such as “not understanding humor” or “rigid thinking.” – Kirkus Review
This is a great book for children, parent’s, educators, and anyone who works with children! I am a principal aide for grades 3 through 5, and deal with many children from different backgrounds and with different disabilities. This book is a wonderful guide to help children make friends and learn how to get along in social situation. ~ Kim, Westford, MA
