My 7 years old son loved it. He got in trouble for some misbehavior at school and I wanted to chose a book that would help him understand that his actions can affect his friends; and this book was perfect because didn't focus on bad behavior, but also on the good ones. The illustrations are very colorful and it is so beautiful. My son said that this was a good book because is teaching him how to keep his friend, he even took to his class to share with his classmates. I do recommend, even if your child doesn't have any behavior problem, this is a guide for a good social life.
