Reviews and Testimonials

Dear JP and Marci,

What wonderful resources you have offered to the world. The activity book is especially engaging with its colorful pictures and focused attention on NVC concepts. I think your goal of getting these resources to as many people as possible is admirable. I've already passed the links to download the book and workbook to 4 people tonight. I've read through the first chapter of the book with my 7 year old son and he is anxious for me to print out the activity sheets so he can work on them."

Hi Marci and JP,

My name is Briana. I am seventeen years old and am currently a high school student. I came to work one day and was talking to a friend about some issues I was having with some of my ex boyfriend's friends who constantly were bullying me. It was an every day thing for them, to make fun of me and they never stopped. One night I was in my car and they continuously punched my car windows trying to get me out...

My friend lent me Giraffe Juice and promised I would feel so much better, and I did. I felt better about not only this particular situation but many other situations I encounter in school, and at home etc. I loved the book so much I wrote a book report on it and got an A+. I just wanted to say thank you very much. I am starting to use Marvel's four steps in my every day life.

Best Wishes,
Briana - Los Angeles, California


ErgoParent Review

This is a treasure of a book for children and adults, too. Giraffe Juice invites us to experience an adventure story rooted in a game called "Making Life Wonderful." Eva, a harmonica and guitar-playing 13-year-old girl, and her two school friends, are guided by one very supportive talking giraffe, Marvel. Together, their trials and successes show the practical and miraculous gifts of Compassionate Communication.

Their strategy is in using the magic of "The Making Life Wonderful" Game... carefully and thoughtfully illuminated, woven into a story about how children and adults can learn to get along very well.

There are the 4 steps suggested for communicating with your children to bring calm, and kindness, to your interactions. You can also practice them with yourself to transform your own frustrations of unmet needs with empathy, and to help melt inner conflicts... To read Claire Kellerman entire review on Click Here
