Reviews all around the world
This book helped my daughter! We have been to several birthday parties where she broke down in tears part way through. I bought this book in my desperate search for help and love it. We read it approximately 20 times in the days leading up to yet another friend’s birthday party. It worked! She was better handle the party with no tears! Since discovering this book, I have purchased all of the others in the series. I love all of them!
