   It's a little long....
As long as I don 't read this book word for word to my young kindergarten and 1st grade students, it is a good book. They relate to the problem of people being in their space and being in their way, but are way too many words for young children to deal with. What I have done to get through the whole book is to break it into shorter lessons and then to get out Hula hoops to use as visuals. It is well-written, but I wish it was written in a little simpler way.
   Great for the classroom
This is a fun book to read while implementing routines and procedures during the first few weeks of school. I teach 3rd grade and students are pretty receptive to the message of the story and will often make references to character and events. I really like this author and also enjoy another book by hers, My Mouth is a Volcano! ''
   Love it!!
My daughter has sensory processing disorder, OCD and ADHD. For other people she has no sense of personal space or personal boundaries. This book is a personal way to teach children about wonderful space. Definitely recommend! Definitely recommend!
   Elementary School Counselor's feedback
The students at the school learned a lot about the concept of personal space '' by reading this book and practicing various activities throughout it. Although the student population was Arab, the lessons are transcendent to any place and time. Learning was meaningful as they brought the topic of personal space in other lessons and with other teachers.
   Not in Love with the Word Choice
I did not love this book so much that I took it quietly off the shelf so that it would never be picked up. The wording is shameful imo, subtly subtly shameful. The name of the principal is “Principle Goodkid” and the adults in the book seem to be super annoyed with the children. It is also excessively wordy and the illustrations are a bit creepy, like a person who usually draws horror was asked to illustrate a children's book.
   Let’s Talk About Space
This book is a perfect reminder for personal space, especially as things begin to transition into more capacity. Every child, adult has a different boundary and a different tolerance of others in their boundary. The main character Louis is supported by his principal as he learns ways to work with personal space on his boundaries. This book would also be a great resource for any children's program leader or teacher.
   LOVE, LOVE her books!!!
Julie Cook's books I LOVE, LOVE Julie Cook! They have been life-changing for us! I recommend her books to everyone!! '' I recommend her books to everyone! My daughter knows when she is having trouble doing or dealing with an issue. She will grab her Julie Cook book that deals with her current issue and we will read the book. I love how Julie relates an issue into a kid-friendly way for them to understand.
   Great conversation starter!
I am a school-based therapist embedded in a school. I must say that this book is so cute ''. Even a kiddo that said : I don 't like to read and is this a kiddie book? It liked it. I read it with kids from 2nd-5th grade, but will use it also with younger kids. The corresponding activity book is good too, but is geared more towards teachers and classroom settings or some can be used in group therapy. The book was suggested by a school-based therapist on Pinterest and I am glad I took the suggestion!
I have an autistic grandson who doesn't quite get the space rules, I have an autistic grandson and this seemed to be quite enlightening for him. He tends to lean against people and has difficulty keeping his hands to himself. This requires a lot of reinforcement, but at least there is a word for it now, so that he understands it.
