Ms. Waters Casper skillfully weaves therapeutic and social issues together within a sound storyline, so that children can learn how to develop positive problem-solving skills along with techniques for anger management and teamwork. This book is a must for parents, teachers, and counselors who want to teach children alternative ways to handle difficult situations, as well as everyday problems."

Mindful Max is a multi-layered story that integrates these concepts with the human dramas arising in many children's lives and those they may interact with, so they may have a way to attain peace and equilibrium while reading the chapter book format they most enjoy at this age. Two research studies on mindfulness meditation academic and cognitive/emotional success with children are included in the book. Because of its universal application, and its status as a stand-alone chapter book, it can read and/or implemented as a tool used in classrooms, private practice or mental health centers, or many other settings where children gather to feel connected and have meaningful experiences.
