He likes reading the little 1-page stories in this book about kids who are "like him" and he's able to relate to these kids easily.

Maybe this book is meant to be read by older children, but my daughter needs it now, in kindergarten.

I work with kids in crisis who have been assessed for suicide risk within the last 90 days. This book is very helpful when teaching them coping skills. The book also covers many different areas that kids need to address, such as communication skills, self-esteem, managing feelings, managing anger, social skills, etc.

My son has to do required reading for school each night for 20 minutes. I chose to use these workbooks for that required reading time and I've finally found something that is INTERESTING for my son to read (age 9). He likes reading the little 1-page stories in this book about kids who are "like him" and he's able to relate to these kids easily. He enjoys brainstorming how the characters in the story can solve their own problems, which he will indeed apply to his own life. The activities after the story reinforce the skills. He's taken away many pearls of wisdom already from these activities and is in a GREAT mood after we've completed our activities. We've had so many conversations open up that have lead to great discussions.

I LOVE THESE WORKBOOKS!!! Every child should have the opportunity to learn self-confidence skills and assertiveness. I feel lucky that I found them.

I got this for my 7-y-o daughter who has seemed a little underconfident this year, starting at a new school. The book is divided into many short topical chapters and there are worksheets at the end of each chapter. Rather than doing this book with a paper and pen, I am reading the little stories to my daughter that are at the beginning of each chapter right before bed and then I ask her a couple of the questions from the worksheet. We are keeping it really short but it holds her attention. I find she will confide in me a little more right before bedtime also.

Even though it is not religious, it kind of reminds me of the kids' devotionals I have done with my daughter - a little helpful story and something to think about. I want to order a couple more of these "instant guide" books to see if I like them also.

I am an elementary school counselor, and I like to print out copies of pages from the book, trim them down, and staple them together, making mini workbooks for my students and I to discuss and complete during individual counseling sessions. The kids love having something tangible to work on, and it facilitates discussion easily. If you make the little booklets I do, it's also something for the kids to take with them after meeting. I love the practicality of the pre-made lessons. I would definitely recommend this book and any of the others by Lawrence Shapiro in this set!

This workbook provides activities for children to practice positive thinking and assertiveness as well as help them learn to see the positive qualities about themselves. I am currently working on this with my 5 year old. It can definitley work for all ages though. I highly recommend this book!

This book would be great to teach my daughter assertiveness, but it's design—the way it looks—causes it to be passed over every night at reading time. To be clear: I would love to read this book to my child and do the activities, but from it's cover it looks like a boring adult self-help book, so my child is automatically turned off from it. I wish it had a more fun, kid-inviting design. If it were lovingly illustrated like another certain children's assertiveness book, it would be much more useful for us.

Maybe this book is meant to be read by older children, but my daughter needs it now, in kindergarten. I guess I'll just have to take the content and make some home-made books based on it.
