Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Paula McMillen
Decades of experience as a child and family therapist certainly give credibility to the suggestions of Dr. Moss in this book from the American Psychological Association's self-help series for children. Chapter titles provide a clear indication of the various aspects of confidence and self-esteem addressed here, including dealing with bullies, meeting new kids, and managing self-talk. One somewhat unique aspect is a section about handling budding romance, or in the author's terminology, "crushes." Although all the tips are sound, e.g., writing down your strengths, practicing positive self-talk, enlisting adult and peer support systems, the book is text-intensive, unrelieved by much in the way of visuals. The author's attempts to use current jargon, e.g., "BFF," seem a little out of sync with this somewhat formal advice format. Readers will have to be dedicated to plow through the information on their own. However, it is a useful addition to a school library or school counselor's library. Reviewer: Paula McMillen, Ph.D.
