Leading professionals are reacting to and recommending Doors. Licensed social worker, Marjorie W. Reagan will utilize Doors in therapy sessions with children. And, with comments like the one below, Doors appears to have staying power.
"Children and adults will feel good after reading Doors. Having kids focus on helping others is a great way to raise self esteem in kids who don’t feel special or important. Any book that can teach positive coping skills to children for handling stress makes sense to me."
