A book that teaches young children how to deal with the highs and lows of life. As a person who suffers from anxiety, this is a great book to get the conversation started with your little ones about recognizing their own feelings and how to overcome them in a positive way.— From Sandra recommends
We all have worries, but when they get bigger and bigger -- and it feels like you can't control them any more -- what do you do then?
What's Worrying You? is a book all about helping children understand their worries, and teaching them what to do when they feel overwhelmed by thoughts and feelings.
Each page takes the child step-by-step through different worry scenarios -- like fighting with a friend, getting in trouble at school, or feeling like no one is listening -- then offers suggestions for how to alleviate anxiety. With fun and lively illustrations from Sarah Jennings, gentle guidance on developing emotional literacy, and simple advice for tackling problems they might face, What's Worrying You? is the perfect book for helping children deal with their feelings and gain confidence in the world around them.
