My daughter is 6 years old and she got home from school oje day crying. She said, "Michelle is so mean!!" and ran into her room. I didnt expect this kind of behavior from a 6 year old. Therfore i have a 12 year old a she says that stuff about her friends. I read this book and talked to my daughter about it. She seemed to understand everything. Her teacher even emailed me and said that my daughter stood up for another girl one day! This book really makes a difference, and you should get it. It is for girls 6-9
A book every teacher and mother of girls should read!
