By a Book Depository customer 10 Dec 2008 3

"If you are reading this review you must have a child who worries. When endless amounts of love, understanding and persuading dont make a difference leaving us parents physicaly and mentally exhausted. Don't even hesitate BUY THIS BOOK It will be the best money you have ever spent!!
I have never written a review before but after purchasing this book to read with my 10 year old daughter I felt compelled to.
It is recomended for 6-12 year olds and is cognative behavoural therapy for kids. If you are not familiar with cognative behavioural therapy it is simply becoming aware of the problem and learning a new way to deal with it. The book is in chapters which the author suggests you read one every couple of days. In each chapter there is a space in which your child is instructed to draw or write something. This helps the information stick in the childs mind and makes it fun for them. this book does not lecture it is gentle and understanding. It is written in an very imaginative way making it both interesting and informative.
On the day the book arrived my daughter had 'pulled a sicky' but then owned up that she was worried about school and didnt know why. We were able to read the first chapter of the book which likens a worry to a tomato seed that if tended often, will grow into a huge plant towering over you. By the afternoon she was ready to go to school. ( probably also something to do with no DS, TV or playing games just helping me clean) but seriously this book is absolutely fantastic at explaining feelings why we feel them and how to get through the difficult anxious times. I'm learning a few things too! I am going to reccomend this book to everyone I can think of including the kids schools its amazing and I am about to order more from the series for my son (who realy should worry more!) Review to follow. "
