Parents need the expert advice of Drs. Ames and Ilg during this difficult year, to explain parent-child relations, friendships with peers, what six-year-olds excel at, how they see the world, what it feels like to be entering the first grade. Children need patience and understanding to help make this transition easier.
I really enjoyed this book because I read it in one sitting.
Understanding why children behave the ways they do make it much easier to face any negative behaviors with a smile and a hug.
Overall, this is a short book (125 pages), and despite being a little dated, I thought it provided numerous good insights.
