Disappointed by lack of resolution
on August 17, 2009
We've been having many of the same issues as previous reviewers and were thrilled to find this book. My 3.5 year old son was very excited to get the book "special delivery" so we read it right away. It was really neat how the character Ryan mirrored my son in every way. It was easy for us to relate to Ryan. However, I was seriously disappointed by the ending of the book! There is no resolution to Ryan's problem. The book ends with the Dr. giving Ryan a plan. Without showing Ryan actually conquering his fears, this book actually didn't help us at all. I think it might have if we could show him, "Look, Ryan did it, you can too!"
Truly a disappointment, given how much we enjoyed the rest of the book.
