This book is based on Dale Carnegie's "How to Win Friends and Influence People". The creation of a version of this book for a younger audience is an excellent idea. Yet, we feel that most of Dale Carnegie's concepts are largely missing (or not reinforced enough). The Lonnie Michelle book only touches upon several of Dale Carnegie's concepts, with little elaboration (and mostly filler illustrations). Each of Dale Carnegie's relevant concepts should have been reinforced with interesting anecdotes.. This book is good for the youngest of audiences as a very basic primer.. Ultimately, there is a great opportunity for someone to author a more detailed book geared for children (with far more text and less illustrations). For now, we feel that parents can provide more effective results by simply purchasing Dale Carnegie's famous book - and to verbally discuss each of the relevant concepts with your children. I wouldn't recommend purchasing Lonnie Michelle's book for children over 9 years old.

I bought this book for my 9 yr. old son who isn't shy but has trouble relating to other kids. I like that this book encourages him to focus on other people, not on himself. (We can all learn that lesson!) It was a good conversation starter for us. I liked the reference to Dale Carnegie's book, "How to Win Friends and Influence People" which is a book my sons have seen my husband and I read several times! I do however think the book is a bit shallow when it promises kids will "make all the friends they want" and that kids can "automatically make friends". I think those statements should be a bit tempered. Overall, I liked the book.

What an amazing book. I'm always impressed when authors who are bona fide experts can relay information without ever being condescending or belittling. I gave this book to a child and was immediately impressed by how much more comfortable he felt in social situations.
Remarkable to read and reread.

Shortly after receiving this book, my wife & daughter read it together. At 7 years old and quite shy, she had trouble making friends in 2nd grade.
It's been three weeks since we bought the book, and she still insists on reading it a couple times a week. We believe it gives her confidence to go to school the next morning and interact with her classmates.
My wife insists that our daughter has a new outlook when it comes to school. She has been more playful, and talks more when she comes home. We hope these results continue!

With an 8-year old son learning how to make friends,and handle new situations at school, I was searching for a book to help him along. This book had suggestions like "smile" and "give people compliments" and I didn't think it was appropriate at all for the issues an 8-year old faces at school. It was way too shallow and didn't address real issues. I did buy another book at the same time from Amazon that was much better - "Good Friends are Hard to Find" and I thought it addressed very specific issues and gave great advice on how to handle each one.

It didn't suit the needs of my child at all, but maybe it would help someone else.
