Poor in quality in every way. Reads more like a story of reminiscence of the author's personal journey.

Very little content that is substantive, at times seems off-point and/or provides excessive focus on seemingly unnecessary content that is common knowledge (using external incentives and rewards as motivators) and not exclusively applicable to SM, which, in such a short book, is a waste of space. The story also seemed to have little, or rather, no resolution or clear sense of how the story will progress; leaving you to think, 'Okay, and how was this enlightening or helpful to the target audience?) It is also only applicable to the child who has a nurturing, doting, insightful, and thoughtful primary care giver (specifically, a mother) -limiting its relatability to my current SM client and to relatively every child I have ever seen in the mental health setting. Sending it back... Love the sweeter, more uplifting, more reasonably priced, and generally vastly superior "Maya's Voice" and highly recommend it.
