Now with a special section on evidence-based teaching activities for parents and teachers, this best-selling children’s classic just became even better and more relevant.

Engaging and easy-to-read, this illustrated book is filled with opportunities for children who experience anxiety 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.
