Why this book?
There are lots of things I like about this book. For one, it is perfectly pitched to middle-grade readers with fun (but not baby-ish) art. It’s clear (without being dumbed down), scientifically accurate (minus the jargon), informative (but not overwhelming). The book normalizes anxiety without glossing over the problems it causes and includes real quotes and real questions asked by real kids. Best of all, there are solutions 9-12-year-olds can implement on their own or, even better, with the help of a supportive adult. You can’t go wrong with this one.
