Jake's Review: This is a really great book to help kids like me get over their worries. The author put everything into words I could understand. She never made me feel weird about having all these worries. The ways in which she suggests that I can get rid of my worries make sense and I hope they will work (Mom's note: please, please, please let them work) I like the pictures, they are really funny and the way the author explains things makes sense. I liked the activity pages, they were fun and they helped me. I think this book would be very helpful to tons of kids I know -- except for Brian who has no worries. I wish there were more examples of worries and ways to help those type of worries. Like that I think there are monsters chasing me up the stairs. I also wish the book was longer and had more fun activities in it. I think sometimes the book is more for younger kids than kids my age.Jake's Rating: 9.5/10Mom's Review: Fantastic. Great Ideas, easy to read with language that kids will understand. Jake and I worked together on this and hopefully some of the activities will help him out. I seriously recommend this as a great starter workbook for parents who's kids have anxiety issues. Now off to find a copy of this that we can keep. This really worked for usMom's Rating 9.5/10

This book explains to children what anxiety is. It also teaches children how to control their anxiety. This book would be very helpful to children who suffer from anxiety.
