Early Childhood Book Reviews
“This wonderful book was written by an experienced Australian clinical psychologist and it is full of valuable messages for Little Anxious Creatures all over the world. We love that this book offers skills to deal with anxiety and worries. It’s clever, funny and USEFUL. Helping children think about their anxiety is the first step in managing them. It opened up very useful conversations and I must say it’s even helped my anxieties a little too with being given the knowledge of some easy self-help tools! .” – Click here to read in full.
