Worry and anxiety are on an upswing. In fact, anxiety is the most frequent of all mental disorders in children. High levels of stress and big emotions related to social situations, sensory issues, or general frustration are common in children who live with anxiety. Such stress can lead to a loss of control, resulting in aggressive behaviour, such as screaming, throwing things or even hurting someone. Prolonged anxiety can also seriously impact success in academic achievement and cause children to avoid social and extracurricular activities.

Now with a special section on evidence-based teaching activities for parents and teachers alike, this bestselling children s classic just became even better and more relevant. Engaging and easy to read, this illustrated children's book is filled with opportunities for children to participate in developing their own self-calming strategies. Children who use the simple strategies in this charming book, illustrated by the author, will find themselves relaxed and ready to focus on work or play!

Kari Dunn Buron taught in K-12 with students on the autism spectrum for 30 years. She developed an Autism Spectrum Disorders Certificate programme for educators at Hamline University in St. Paul, MN, USA and has done volunteer work specific to autism in Trinidad, Tobago, Barbados, Tanzania and Ghana.

Filled with wonderfully goofy illustrations, this is one book that puts the power in the hands of kids. Intended for children with anxiety conditions, it teaches calming strategies and smart ways to recognize moods before they spin out of control. The book includes a foreword for parents and teachers and explains how to put some of the methods the author describes into practice. - TIME Magazine
