When My Worries Get Too Big! : A Relaxation Book for Children Who Live with Anxiety Paperback
Worry and anxiety are on an upswing. In fact, anxiety is the most frequent of all mental disorders in children.
High levels of stress and big emotions related to social situations, sensory issues, or general frustration are common in children who live with anxiety.
Such stress can lead to a loss of control, resulting in aggressive behaviour, such as screaming, throwing things or even hurting someone.
Prolonged anxiety can also seriously impact success in academic achievement and cause children to avoid social and extracurricular activities.
Now with a special section on evidence-based teaching activities for parents and teachers alike, this bestselling children s classic just became even better and more relevant.
Engaging and easy to read, this illustrated childrenAEs book is filled with opportunities for children to participate in developing their own self-calming strategies.
Children who use the simple strategies in this charming book, illustrated by the author, will find themselves relaxed and ready to focus on work or play!

Review by ajfurman
I feel like there are not enough children's books on anxiety. The amount of insight this book puts into the text and feelings of this character is eye opening for those who do not have anxiety disorders. But, the main purpose of this book is relaxation techniques for children with anxiety. This is an early-reader style how-to kind of book that is much more engaging than something a doctor or a therapist might tell you. This book displays a visual thermometer to allow children to show there they fall in bottled up anxiety, and helps give the language of anxiety disorders to readers. With this book as a tool, children can express how they feel more clearly and using terms that most can understand. This is the main purpose behind this book.
