The book was written in collaboration with her daughter, Lee Delzingo. Since Lee is completing her Master?s degree in Special Education, works in an elementary school, and is the mother of a 7 year-old daughter and 10 year-old son, Dr. Lavi asked her to help with the project.

It was designed for parents, teachers and counselors to read with children.
