Worries can feel like a BIG problem to a LITTLE kid
A Feel Better Book for Little Worriers assures kids that having some worries is normal -- everyone has them, even adults
The rhyming narration helps little kids to identify a worry and where it might come from, as well as provides them with helpful tools to reduce and cope with worries.
Includes a Note to Parents and Caregivers that expands on the cognitive-behavioral science behind the strategies and tools presented in the book, with more information on how you can help your little worrier to stay calm.
From the Note to Parents and Caregivers:
Imagine if the skills for managing stress and anxiety were learned in early childhood. Children as young as three years old who are experiencing anxious feelings for the first time could ease their worries by practicing proper breathing and relaxation techniques.. Teaching these skills early in a child's life will not only establish confidence and courage, but will set the foundation for managing
anxiety that can transition well into adulthood.

Each verse offers a valuable lesson. Whether using this book at home, school, or in a clinical setting, these lessons can be put to use in a multitude of ways.
