Format: Paperback
This book hits the perfect balance between activities parents can use for their own kids with activities professional counselors and therapists can use with their child clients. One section reminded me The Womans Comfort Book, only for children. "A Pirate's Survival Guide" really impressed me with its ability to provide children living with addiction, poverty and chaos a mental framework in which to better deal with those challenges. My favorite section was the pages and pages of boxed ideas for unstructured time that could be photocopied, cut apart and rolled up/folded to be chosen at random by a child needing something to do. The ideas were so appealing, I felt like getting up and doing them myself as they were exactly the kind of fun I would have loved when I was little, though I wouldn't have thought myself of doing them. There are plenty of ideas to help children w/ anxiety, grief, coping skills, goal setting, and transition times. In short, any parent or chld therapist will find this book to be a resource they can turn to often.

First, let me say this is an excellent book. I won't go into that, though, as many other review address all it's great qualities. What I WILL say is DON'T BUY THE KINDLE VERSION. I bought the kindle version with the intent of being able to print any of the many excellent reproducables straight from my ipad to my printer (no more hassle of trying to squash a book into a copier and only getting mediocre prints in return). Unfortunately, the print option (while available on SOME of my kindle books) was completely missing- NO WAY TO PRINT ANY OF THE REPRODUCIBLES. What a wast of money- if you plan on actually using any of the ideas, you will either have to make up your own worksheets (waste of time) or buy a hard copy of the book (waste of money). Save your money and send away for the actual book. It will save you time and money, in the long run. I wish amazon would fix this glaring mistake!

A wonderful book. Full of practical, simple but meaningful tasks to help children to express themselves and cope with difficulties in their lives.
I like this book for its simple presentation, short clear explanations for each task
with no long winded analysis......the creative tasks speak for themselves.
A great resource for anyone wanting to assist children in need of support and expression in a gentle and respectful way.
I love this book and refer to it often in my work.

This book is a practical resource parents and child therapists seeking creative ideas. It outlines a variety of interesting projects that children can do during unstructured time, which is a welcome alternative to TV and computer. It also includes coping strategies for anxious children as well as for grieving children. My favorites are Thinga-ma-finds and Worry Pizza. A great resource!

This has such good ideas for working with children and using items that are available in our homes, inexpensive and creative. When being creative children are not focused on how bad things are but are being uplifted.
