This is a great book for helping kids to learn peaceful and co-operative ways of resolving conflicts. Too often they become frustrated and overwhelmed by feelings which they don't know how to name or control. This book shows how to understand and think about the problem, how to try and understand the other persons point of view and how to talk things through, it makes the point that by doing all these things, not only will everyone be happier because the outcome is better but there is also the added bonus of having more fun and friends to play with which is more important than getting your own way all the time. The text and pictures are simple and the situations used in the story are ones which all small children can relate to. My 6 year old really likes this book and finds it fun as well as helpful, he can read a lot of it by himself and also likes to look at it on his own from time to time. He told me that very often he doesn't know what to do in these situations and seems relieved to have a book which gives him some help and guidance. There are lots of good games/questions at the back of the book which have prompted lots of discussion about various situations he has found himself in and how he might handle similar ones next time. Definately a useful book to have to help any young child feel comfortable and confident in sorting out the many conflicts and disagreements that arise between small children.

The books on this collection by Cheri Meiners are wonderful. They discuss simple problems which small children of pre-school and young school age face, including how to learn to listen, to share, to care about others, to follow the rules, amongst many others. The books are written in simple language and richly illustrated, so young ones learning to read will benefit from the content as well as the opportunity to practice their reading. A must-have for parents!

I bought this book for my grandson who is autistic. He related to the illustrations and character expressions. I will buy more from the same series.

This book has helped my children talk through arguments rather than shouting at each other when they argue about a toy or similar. It's not hugely engaging so they don't pick it out as a bed time story book, hence only four stars, but when they argue we can get the book out as a gentle reminder on how to behave better.

My daughter loves these books, really good for talking about emotions, and learning how to deal with others with respect. A little American but I just swap some of the words.

Not good value for money, but a decent book. We prefer the Join In book, which also helps with cooperating and negotiating.

These books are fantastic. Purchased for my son who has ASD but the school has now started using them for all children.
