This is a fun book for anyone who is familiar with the enneagram. It is full of illustrations which makes it a quick and easy to read. There are some general questions for each type to help you guess what your child's personality type is. I recommend learning about the enneagram for your own growth as well as getting a better understanding of the other significant people in your life. But then again, I'm a Five and I love knowledge! =)
I'm a fan of "The Enneagram Made Easy," and this book was great in many of the same ways. An excellent introduction with whimsical illustrations and cartoons. I appreciate her clarification that, with children, we say that the child is "currently behaving in the Nine style" instead of boxing them into an Enneagram type right away.

I had to read this book for a class that I am taking on children's personalities within the classroom. This book was truly eye-opening and really helped me understand some of my students better! Anyone who is a parent or a teacher should read this book. By the way, I am an adventurer type!
I was hoping for more. I wanted a personality "diagnostic" for my kid, with in-depth information about the motivations, fears and triggers for that type of personality. Instead, it felt all quite high-level and I didn't get a whole lot out of it.
