“A great series!  I love this series and these workbooks for kids!  . . . As a school counselor, I am able to use these books when I meet with groups as well as individuals. . . . There are many stories and activities for each weekly meeting and the activities are useful and relevant.  You will appreciate the conversation starters that this book provides.  Kids enjoy the activities and you will, too.  I highly recommend these books!

A terrific workbook for kids who need help with understanding social cues and developing their own inter-personal skills. It is also a great resource for parents!  A valuable library addition to add to any school with or without social/emotional curriculum!”
