Get rid of worry

What to Do When You Worry Too Much: A Kid's Guide to Overcoming Anxiety 
by Dawn Huebner, Ph.D.

Worries, writes Dawn Huebner, are like tomatoes: you can make them grow by paying too much attention to them. Too much attention means that little worries can turn into big worries which are hard to get rid of. Huebner's interactive self-help book guides children through behavioral techniques that will relieve anxiety. The kid-friendly language, metaphors and pictures make the book easy to understand, while the techniques themselves are simple to try. Blank pages prompt children to draw and write about their worries, empowering them so that they can reduce their worries themselves with minimal help.

A useful and popular book for worriers of all ages.
