Love this book  Dec 3, 2008
I bought this for my 9 year old daughter (now 10.) She has an anxiety disorder diagnosed by a trained psychologist as well as being placed in Special Education at school due to her anxiety being severe enough to interfere with school.

She enjoyed the book, it kept her interested, and she easily understood the ideas presented. I truly believe the book has helped her greatly and that it has given her a sense of control of her life that she did not have before by allowing her to control her "worries."

I too was apprehensive that the book was babyish for her as she is rather mature for her age. I believe this is probably common with anxious children as they are mature enough to absorb ideas (stresses and concerns) but still lack the ability to cope with those worrisome revelations. This book gives children those needed coping skills at a level that spans a large age group.

If you have a child who suffers anxiety, this book is money beyond well spent. It is also a small price to pay to at least "try."
Helpful workbook for most ages!  Oct 29, 2008
This workbook is a unique tool in explaining anxiety to children and a means for coping with it. The book creatively teaches the process of externalizing worries so they are not all consuming. Although written for children, it is good in concept for adults as well.
Great Book!  Oct 17, 2008
This book literally changed my 10 year old daughter's life. She had a tendency to worry about things that "might" happen. This book is an interactive tool that allows your child (or even an adult!) to work through anxiety, stress and worry. She completed the book six months ago and has not needed again - but I will keep it just in case! A wonderful book and useful tool to help your little one rationalize, prioritize and categorize real worries from irrational fears.
Exactly What I Was Looking For  Oct 10, 2008
My five year old son has been very anxious since starting Kindergarten last month. He had separation anxiety and would cry several times a day at school. I knew he was adjusting to his new routine, but then he started getting anxious about going to school and would ask, "Mommy, what if I cry? I don't want to cry at school." So I found this book on this site and was 'sold' when I saw all of the wonderful reviews. I started reading it to my son the day I received it. My son couldn't believe that this book was describing exactly how he'd been feeling. As I read it, I noticed he was hanging on my every word. There are wonderful ideas and he's so excited to start using them. This morning before school he even said, "Mommy, I don't think I'm going to cry today." So, I highly recommend this book. I know how heart-wrenching it is to watch your little one suffer with anxiety. Best of luck!
A wonderful resource!  Oct 2, 2008
I sat down on my porch and read this through yesterday upon receiving it. It is a wonderful, LARGE book (8.5 X 11) with large type, easy to read and easy on the eyes. Our son who just turned 7 has had struggles with anxiety off and on for years. This book is 'right up his alley'! He is an imaginative boy, and draws to express what is in his mind. This book is full of pages where the anxious child can draw the topic or idea discussed. One idea I had (don't think it's a copyright issue if I own the book) is to xerox the drawing pages and let my son use the copies. So when he gets in an anxious period again, and we redo this process with another worry, he'll have fresh pages to use.

The explanations and reading level seem just perfect for any 6 to 10 year old, maybe even some five year olds. If your child is in elementary school, this book is for them.

I agree with the other reviewer that did not appreciate labeling sufferers as "weak people". It was in reference to a 'worry bully' picking on the child. A couple other places the text refers to the worry bully SEEING the child as weak, but this one place where the child is LABELED a "weak person" did concern me. I just took out my Sharpie, marked over the word 'weak' and left it that bullies like to pick on people, period. This one tiny sentence did not ruin an otherwise terrific book, for me!!

Overall a wonderful resource for a school age child. The illustrations are terrific, also!
