    A great resource!

    This workbook is a great resource that every school should have. I am a school counselor and use this workbook in my family change groups. It has great stories and ideas to help children understand that they are not the only ones going through a difficult time in their families lives. There are helpful activities that you can use for every weekly meeting and the occasional illustrations are good. The kids I work with really like these activities and I will use this book again and again!
