This book distills it into clear, simple language and supporting illustrations.

Includes skill-building games and role plays for adults to use with children.

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
4.5 / 7.0

Definitely a “how-to” book, and not a story, but it outlines how to work through problems calmly and using words on a level that children can understand and I thought it was well-done
