We bought all the books in the series and they are really great. At least theoretically my son gets the concepts described. Now we are working on the practical implementation :)

HASH(0x9a62c264) out of 5 stars Great for adressing empathy (or lack thereof :) Sept. 19 2007
By Mom of 3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the third book in the series that I have purchased for my 2 1/2 year old, and it's great. Simple repetitive language and clear pictures have helped us address typical 2-year-old selfishness from a new angle... I think it would also be great for early elementary age children with delays in their social understanding (autism, developmental delays, etc.)

HASH(0x9a62c2b8) out of 5 stars Highly recommend for kids with Anxiety Dec 19 2013
By knittymama - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My son is 4 years old and even though he generally has very high emotional intelligence, his anxiety prevents him from acting on his caring feelings. I have found Cheri Meiner's books to be extraordinarily helpful in learning the appropriate responses to other people and acting on them, despite his anxiety. I think it helps to have it all laid out for him rather than have to think of it himself in the moment. It's more automatic this way.

I am a physician so have now bought several of Cheri Meiners' books for my practice to share with other kids with anxiety and have found kids up to 10 being willing to read them so long as they aren't around someone they have to keep cool in front of. I've also heard from parents of kids down to about 18 months finding them helpful in talking about just normal developmental stuff. Would highly recommend all the books in the series.

HASH(0x9a62c594) out of 5 stars Good for younger children or those needing more help Jan. 21 2010
By E. Gaccione - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very good book and works well for my 2 and 3 year olds but I purchased it for my 6 year old who has Sensory Processing Disorder. I think it's just a littel too immature for him even with his Sensory issues. I could see how this would help with a child with more extensive sensory issues such as those in Autism. My 6 year old is just a bit beyond this book and doesn't want to read it. My toddlers really enjoy it and it really helps them learn about empathy.

HASH(0x9a62c48c) out of 5 stars Great Resource Feb. 21 2015
By Jocelyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This series is wonderful, especially for a child with delayed social skills. It has really helped my son with theory of mind and empathy. The books are all beautifully illustrated with obvious emotions displayed on the children's faces. Every aspect of the concepts of the books are covered and the back of the books offers lots of helpful ideas and activities for further learning and mastery of the concepts. This is one of my sons favorites from the series. He studies the pictures and goes over the explanations in detail each time. It's been very helpful for him. If your child needs a little help with empathy and/or if your child is anywhere on the autism spectrum, I can't recommend this book and this series enough.

HASH(0x9a62c678) out of 5 stars Best book for teaching empathy April 18 2011
By S. Karajannis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is my favorite of the books by Cheri Meiners. The illustrations are vivid and the book is an excellent tool for teaching what different emotions look like. The book teaches not only how to identify emotions but also how to empathize with other people's feelings. I did use my own words to describe what was going on in the pictures vs. the actual text, but you can narrate it in the way you feel best works.
