Put Your Worries Away

Put Your Worries Away

illustrated by Sarah Jennings

All children worry sometimes, and they often need help learning how to deal with anxiety. In this encouraging picture book, readers learn ways to help themselves when they feel anxious, nervous, or fearful. Strategies for how to calm down and cope with worries are clearly explained, from breathing exercises and playing with friends to seeking help from an adult.

Accompanying the text are gentle illustrations featuring diverse children in a variety of situations. Readers will enjoy seeing kids their own age working to overcome challenges and deal with nervousness, worry, and other difficult feelings in healthy ways.

At the back of the book, kids will find a special section with additional ideas and activities they can use to deal with worrying thoughts. Also included at the end of the book is a note to caregivers with advice on helping children understand and use the tools and methods from the book.
