5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books around. 6 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have brought many books over the years from amazon for my job as learning mentor in a primary school, but I have to say this book is the best one so far. The activities are funny to do and the children have learnt so much be doing them. All the activities are well written and easy to follow,it is American but easy to adapt for English schools. It covers children and teenagers so plenty to choose from. I would recommend this book to anyone in support work in schools, colleges and other educational settings.

It's got lots of great ideas - but aimed at an American audience and more ideas for group work than one to one.

I bought this, it arrived within a day, and I have used it for my group and individual sessions every day since I received it. The bibliotherapy lessons and month guidance lessons are fantastic. All are easy to follow and easily adaptable for group size and age.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 1 Dec 2012
By Erin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Has some great ideas . and awesome ways to adapt the activity to different ages, numbers of children, etc. I love that the book tells you specifics such as the therapeutic use for the activity, and how to use it. Definitely would recommend. Also, most of the supplies needed are not costly and may already be in your office!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! 12 July 2012
By Becky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love how this book is organized from the table of contents to the index of purposes of activities. Each activity is outlined clearly, including materials, and the author included suggestions for variations on each activity. This book will save me a lot of time searching different places for art- and activity-based lessons.
