The struggle spread all over the land and is probably going on right where you live. If you want to, and I hope you do, you can join by freely giving and asking for Warm Fuzzies and by being as loving and healthy as you can.

  The Warm Fuzzy Tale was first published in 1970 and has since been reproduced and translated hundreds of thousands of times by people all over the world. The Fuzzy Tale has become a true folk tale which has penetrated the lives of many people far removed from its author. The JALMAR Press edition was the first time that A Warm Fuzzy Tale had been fully illustrated in its original version.

  It was Claude Steiner, West Coast clinical psychologist and author, who originated the concept of Warm Fuzzies and Cold Pricklies in the late 1960's. Without fanfare or exploitation the concept has become the delightful symbol of the positive and negative strokes given and received in human living and loving among countless children and adults. Dr. Steiner was a close friend and collaborator of Eric Berne in the development of Transactional Analysis. Steiner's books, Games Alcoholics Play and Scripts People Live have become classics in the study of human transactions. In 1980's Dr. Steiner was at work on a study of power and people.
