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
A rare feat: a self-help book that bypasses jargon to become a terrific resource for kids.—NAPPA
