5 stars "A SUSTAINABLE HEALTH EXPERIMENT -- BRAVO!" EXCERPT: This book delivers on its promise to uplift the spirit, and I can personally attest to that because I did feel plenty of joy while I was going on the journey within its folds. It's an immersive interactive experience that teaches you, pats you on the shoulder, gives you something to laugh about and something else to think deeply about.
It makes every reader an active participant in a single-player game of self-discovery about defeating unseen psychological enemies. There's plenty of information about emotional intelligence and how to handle one's own emotions in simple words. I even did the EQ test and enjoyed knowing the areas where I need to work on getting better.
5 stars - VERY VERSATILE & USEFUL!
The book has a wide variety of activities, surveys and stories that are all helpful to youth understanding and coping during this time and I believe beyond this time. Adolescents need to feel like they are not alone in this journey during the pandemic and I think that the stories provide a nice resource to help them feel connected.
The surveys such as the emotional intelligence test is useful for young people to understand what they are feeling. Not only are the surveys helpful but they are different modalities of expression in the book that help with coping such as art and writing. I recently gave a copy of the book to one of my students that was struggling and she enjoyed everything about the book as well. Thank you for providing such a great source during this difficult time.

5 stars - PLENTY ABOUT EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE - EVEN A SAMPLE TEST
EXCERPT: To be quite honest, reading this book is nothing like a chore at all. It's literally a self-help page-turner, albeit for a younger audience.
And there's a lot of humor there as well, and I caught myself chuckling more than once at the witty words.
There's also this underestimated aspect of this project and that it doesn't take very long to go through sections at all. A very important reason why it could be wildly successful because its target audience has a very short attention span and they're used to scrolling social media feeds all hours of day and night relentlessly. So providing so many nuggets of wisdom and playful ways to think through big matters cannot be overstated.
USEFUL. HELPFUL. CHEERFUL. " A very captivating book. I bought it for my teenagers and they love it. It's not the kind of novel with lots of literature but a handy and very practical piece of work. "
"DO" THIS BOOK! "This is a book to “do” as much as a book to read. Equal parts peer perspectices, creative journal, ‘yearbook’, all the activities are fun and thought-provoking. Daughter loved it!"
VERY UPLIFTING! "Super engaging for youth and let’s them use their creative minds. Definitely a book you can pick up and put down whenever as it isn’t heavy read. Believe it’s going to help with emotional health!
"NOT JUST A BOOK BUT A COMPLETE WELLNESS EXPERIENCE"
Such an easy read! This should be one of the best gifts ever for a parent to give their children, especially during these times of pandemic. I loved the organization of the material the fun transitional activities. It was a lot of fun and I didn't expect it to be this much fun at all.
It's part book, part journal, part practical life advice and maxims, part encouraging words by peers, and part silly fun. All in addition to many resources for help and support.
