    This book talks about how young children deal with anxiety and how to navigate life with anxiety. Anxiety is a huge disability that is not talked about enough and is usually just blown off as being worrisome or something else. I really like how this book brings more light to this disability and talks about ways that children and their parents/teachers can figure out calming techniques for that child.

    I use this book a lot with parents who have children with anxiety in my professional life. I recommend this to parents that I know in my personal life, as well. It does a great job of explaining that worrying is okay to experience and how to identify what is causing your worry. It helps children learn tips to overcome worry, as well.

    It teaches kids how to cope and relax with anxiety. It has a great story behind it and it comes with a great collection of how to cope with other things. The illustrations are kid-friendly and very helpful. I give this book a 3 because it is teacher-parent based too.

    A great resource, with some fab ideas, will have to change some of the language to use in U.K. (It's American). A great resource, with some fab ideas, will have to change some of the language to use in U.K. (It's American).

    This is cute little book that helps children with anxiety learn ways they can self-soothe and manage their emotions. It used to be targeted at children with Autism, but I like that it has a broader title to include anxiety outside of Autism as well. I have anxiety myself, and my oldest displays behaviour patterns and anxiety attacks not unlike mine. This was recommended by a child psychologist for us to check out, and I'm quite liking it.

Beautiful book, glossy page, simple easy to understand sentences, and pages for the child to personalize. I borrowed it from the library, but I think I'll be ordering a copy, so A can keep, write in, and we can go back to it again again, perhaps with it becoming our "calm down" tool.

    Actually a workbook for children 5 to 9 with Autism, to review and complete with an adult. The books offers steps (including physical exercises) to attempt when Autism symptoms begin to get out of control. I think it would be a good option for teachers, therapists and parents to use with children with Autism. It's best to buy the book and use pencil to complete the pages so they can be updated when the child feels like changing their input.

    This was recommended to me by the developmental behavioral psychologist who recently diagnosed my 6 year old with anxiety disorder. She read this with me and we had the best conversations we have had in weeks! Usually she doesn't want to read a book with me, but this was a big hit that opened her up and suddenly I was hearing from her feelings and experiences that I had never heard her talk about before!

I also found out that my 8 year old with autism, who also exhibits some anxiety, has been using this book in group therapy at school and she was excited to talk to us about it too so we read it again. Highly useful for kids (and their adults) with anxiety.

    I would like to purchase a copy of this to use with my son,as the copy I read was from the library, but I'm not sure how I feel about the terminology "when my autism gets too big," because that implies that all of my son's quirks that might lead him to anxiety or meltdowns are negative, and they're not. Certain elements that lead to meltdown are actually very -positive- things when channeled properly using the right tools. So. I don't know.

Certain elements that lead to meltdown are actually very -positive- things when channeled properly using the right tools. So. I don't know.

    What a fantastic book to read with children who are working through anxiety! Very simple, easy to understand language, mixed with a few easy activities/strategies to try. I will be using this with my small counseling group of elementary students.
