This 40 page book is a wonderful way for kids to discover more about stuttering in an open and encouraging way. It lets them know that the harder they try not to stutter, the more they may do so. Letters to brothers and sisters, grandparents, teachers, and others let children take the lead in educating the people in their environment. The personal letters written by other kids who stutter help to normalize stuttering and let readers know that they are not alone.
"...counseling children to accept their stuttering is a means of working directly on stuttered speech. Because if a child is encouraged to go ahead and stutter, they then can change it. But if a child is encouraged to not stutter, this perpetuates the negative reaction." Barry Guitar, Ph.D.
