Dr. Pal stated “I was inspired to write this book after teaching special education and becoming a parent myself. I was in private practice as a child therapist helping parents and children to have less stress and increased happiness. I couldn’t find a self-help book to share with my client’s so I wrote “Max Pays Attention”.
“I’m a big believer in using bibliotherapy to help a child or adult with grief, self esteem, school concerns and/or relationship problems. I believe too many children lack motivation for a variety of reasons. In the book “The Little Engine That Could” the train thought he/she wasn’t going to get up the mountain but he/she was determined to get to the top and said “I think I can I think I can”.
