"On any given day, around thirty percent of my patients have
anxiety related symptoms. The simplicity and completeness
of the explanations and treatment of anxiety given in this
book is remarkable. Defining the cause, treating the core
symptoms, and most importantly bringing it to a child's level
accompanied by wonderful illustrations, is an incredible
feat. I will definitely use this book in my practice."

process but it has been reduced to understandable terms
in this brilliantly illustrated book for children. I would go
even further and say that there are adults who could benefit from the straightforward approach."
