Our son loves this book, and he now knows he has OCD. Because of Dr. Huebner's book our son thinks of OCD as an adventure that he gets to be involved in (the book is an child participation as well as reading)and we are seeing huge progress. I recommend this book - our lives have changed completely and as a mother I can't thank Dr. Huebner enough.
We started reading this book. Then all three of the books disappeared from the living room. My daughter liked these books so much that she actually read and reread them on her own in her room! We are still methodically going through them together, but that she enjoys additionally reading them on her own says something about their child-friendly content. The pages are very interactive, with a good deal of writing and drawing to be done.
Anyway, when we were about halfway through the book, my daughter announced that she was going to stand around holding the doorknob. And she wanted to tackle mail! I discussed going outside, on her own, to go and get the mail. The next day she did it!! This was an enormous achievement for her. You understand, she had to touch the doorknob to open the door, go to the mailbox, touch and hold all the mail/envelopes, and then face down the doorknob again. She told OCD off and did it with no problems whatsoever. Then she went and washed her hands.
I know it's just a first step, but it's a giant leap for her. From now on, she'll be checking the mail every day. And all because of this book. My daughter has been in therapy for a year. She took the largest leap to date because of this book.
