When Miles Got Mad US/Can Ends May 28

The Mother Company has offered me an opportunity to review their new book When Miles Got Mad and to offer a copy to one of my readers.

Personally the book was an interesting read and I felt it could be useful in helping our autistic son learn some tips for when he got upset. Because of the uniqueness of autism this as always required some modification to help him apply it, however I found that when we used the book, in conjunction with trying to help him understand how to moderate his upset that there were some definitive improvements. In my mind it is definitely worth the effort and can be another great tool in the arsenal of special needs parents trying to help their children cope with their unique and specific concerns.

    They don’t have the largest selection so naturally I am overlapping with other people who have already entered even though I went to their website. I like a little book about feelings.
