I bought this book for my 8 year old daughter who has selective mutism. Both of us liked the book however I had to read this with her. The book is probably written for a 10 years or older. I didn't mind reading it with her but she likes to read alone so she found it abit overwhelming, many long words. I think if it was meant for a girl her age it should have had less words per page and more colorful. But overall a well written book and lets her know she is not alone.Understanding Katie

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.

The book provides examples of how the child feels and also shows how the support of the adults is so beneficial to the child.

If you have a child with selecitve mutism this book will help your child realize they aren't alone in the struggle.
