3 Reviews
The classic of child therapy. Dibs will not talk. He will not play. He has locked himself in a very special prison. And he is alone. This is the true story of how he learned to reach out for the sunshine, for life . . . how he came to the breathless discovery of himself that brought him back to the world of other children.

I love this book, I have read it 3 or 4 times in the 10 years since I first got it. I am always glued to it when I pick it up, even though I already know the ending. Read full review

I really love this book. I red this when I was 18 or 19. But I will never forget the story, and how inspiring it was. Now I was 30 years old have my own kid. I think it inspire me to be a good Mom & how to treat my child correctly
