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. ( )

More than anything, 'losing control' can cause major problems for children. Aimed at children aged 5-9, this book gives them an opportunity to explore with parents or teachers their own feelings as they react to events in their daily lives, while learning some useful relaxation techniques. Children who use the simple strategies presented in this charming book, illustrated by the author Kari Dunn Buron, will find themselves relaxed and ready to work or play.

Kari worked for many years as a special needs teacher. She is co-author with Mitzi Curtis of The incredible 5-point scale, assisting children with ASDs in understanding social interactions and controlling their emotional responses, aimed at children aged 7-13 and also published in UK English by The National Autistic Society.

The cover turned the boy off right away. He asked me to hide it when we picked it up from the library for fear it be seen as a "baby book." On the other hand, the actual technique seemed to hit a chord with him to deal with anxiety-producing situations before they ratchet up too high, so we can add it to the toolkit for him. ( )
