A Gold NAPPA (National Parenting Publications Awards) winner
"A rare feat: a self-help book that bypasses jargon to become a terrific resource for kids."—NAPPA
“This book takes ideas that are overwhelming for a small child and presents them in manageable chunks. It is the first step to saying goodbye to anxiety!”—Portland Book Review
“The title says it all really, what to do when you worry too much. Huebner gently explains that worries are normal and all kids have them. She uses humorous illustrations and metaphors to explain that if your worries have grown so big that they get out of hand and bother you almost every day, you might need some extra help.”—The Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand
"Dr. Huebner has created a completely accessible, easy-to-understand book to show worrying children a new way of life. Kids will breathe a sigh of relief to learn solutions that really work."—Tamar Chansky, PhD, author of Freeing Your Child from Anxiety and Freeing Your Child from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
"This one is unique in that it’s meant for the parent and child to share, working together to develop strategies to conquer anxiety. It’s a great concept, and would be an excellent tool to start with if you’re dealing with an anxious child."—Chad Hayes MD
"One reason that this book is a popular recommendation of child psychologists is that it talks to kids at their own level. Huebner does an excellent job incorporating humor into the book to help children understand why they are feeling anxious."—WebPsychology
