Normalizes the issue.

We were sent this book by our pediatrician and it was very helpful to our 8-year-old. The reading level was easier than she is used to but she was able to identify with Andrew. The book normalized her issues (hiding panties, accidents at school) since she feels like she's the only one, no matter how much we tell her she isn't. There's a book about it!

Great Help

My son really enjoyed this book. It helped him see that he was not alone. It also seems to have helped with the soiling.

Tender and uplifting, but aimed at much younger children

This little book is short and simple. The main problem is that it is clearly aimed at children who may not even be old enough to read it for themselves. Not that there's anything wrong with a grown-up reading to them, but encopresis affects many children that are over the first-grade reading level. (The little boy in the book appears to be approximately first or second grade.)Unfortunately, there is very little out there in the way of useful, informative literature that addresses the medical and psychological aspects of these problems. Dr. Galvin is to be commended and congratulated for his efforts and insights on how to comfort, encourage, and challenge children (and parents) who deal with encopresis. Believe it or not, with patience and perseverance, this problem does end, and there is life after it.

My Son Got Instant Results From This Book

I read the story to my 4 1/2 year old son, after months of fruitless efforts to help him. He immediately identified with the boy in the story. I took him into the bathroom, intending to start with the first step suggested, however, my son proceeded through all the steps right then and there, and has not had an accident since! I couldn't believe it! I recommend this book to anyone with a child who has this problem.

Informative for the children who suffer Encopresis

We ourselves have a copy of this book and if your child is in the early stages of Encopresis, treatment wise, then this does go some way to relieving the fears they have. Being a parent of Encopretic children I did find uses for the book, as an aid towards opening the childs mind as to what goes on and found it a great tool to open discussion with your child about the problem. What a shame that there is not more people willing to put it in print as to what the fears are of the childs parents or guardians.The only addition to this book is to see a book written by and on behalf of the the parents of sufferers. We need support and guidance as well!
