Written by P.J. Michaels, illustrated by Anna Dewdney. It is hard to fully appreciate how children must feel when they first go to a counselor. This book, written from the point of view of a child, can make it easier for children to understand what typically happens in a counselor's office. The child in the story is referred for counseling because of his behavioral problems, and although he doesn't want to see the counselor, he quickly learns the value of having a special listening friend. It shows children how talking to a caring, concerned professional can help them work through their problems and feel better. 57-pages, spiral-bound book.
