I would say this set of books is best suited for 2nd-6th graders based on the reading level. Although the skills could be used by any age.
I purchased a couple different titles. I wouldn't mind owning the entire series, just to keep as reference books.
And, it's one you want to own. Not a library book because they will go back to it over and over. We didn't draw it in. Instead, we just talked through what we would draw or imagine in our minds eye.
Each lesson had a great theme and was relate-able to a youngster in such a way they could put themselves in the situation as well as allowed us to do the same. Then as things came up we could calmly bring the lesson up and you could see the light bulb go off in his head - it clicked. So by the time we finished it was like we have a new person able to enjoy the summer again.
My wife and I were so impressed with it that we are looking at some of the other ones for the other kids too.
