This is an excellent child friendly book which explains in easy to understand terms how anxiety can affect a child. The illustrations are gentle and fun and make the book the kind that you could read at bedtime. It's also useful to read this book in conjunction with explaining to your child about anxiety and the 'fight/flight' response. The book explains how thinking in a negative and scared way about things only helps the anxiety grow, almost like an out of control plant, being fed and watered and tended to far more than it needs to be. A fun but effective way to explain anxiety to young children. --Alison Harris, Occupational Therapist
