Book Overview

(Grades 2-5) Anxiety is a subjective sense of worry, apprehension, and/or fear. It is considered to be the number one health problem in America. Although quite common, anxiety disorders in children are often misdiagnosed and overlooked.

Everyone feels fear, worry and apprehension from time to time, but when these feelings prevent a person from doing what he/she wants and/or needs to do, anxiety becomes a disability.

This fun and humorous book addresses the problem of anxiety in a way that relates to children of all ages. It offers creative strategies for parents and teachers to use that can lessen the severity of anxiety.The goal of the book is to give children the tools needed to feel more in control of their anxiety. For those worries that are not in anyone's control (i.e. the weather, ) a worry hat is introduced. A fun read for Wilmas of all ages Softcover, 32 pages.

   Great read!
My daughter has some anxiety issues and this book was a great read for her. She has me to thank for that, because I have read it several times. Highly recommend.
   Worries We Can Control and Worries We Can't
After reading this to my students, I said, "You can think of all the worries in your life that you can control." The whole class helped each other troubleshoot when they were worried and ways to address this emotion.
   Cute Story
What a great book about worrying for children with anxiety, Raymond said.
   Great Book, Highly Recommended!
I am a child therapy student and also have a Special Needs Child, for whom I ordered this book. Great work, said Goodrich. I would highly recommend this product to anyone, with a child suffering from this problem.
   Teaches fragility and that natural curly hair is shameful
It's a terrible book. Teaches kids that they don't have any control over their fears — the only way to handle their fears is by an adult who controls every situation so the kid is never stressed, ever, Levine said. Also teaches kids that curly natural hair is worthy of teasing, and that the natural curly-haired kid should learn from a hairdresser how to have straighter hair. Only in the past few weeks have we seen any real improvement, Mr. Ridge said.
   The illustrations and message in this book were not beneficial for our family
But if your child struggles with school or home anxiety, this may not be the book for them. I bought it for our daughter because her teacher recommended it and I wish I had checked it out beforehand because I ended up returning, Melissa said. It's Wilma's face in the entire book that really scared me, and the message is not one I want to send to my daughter struggling with her fears. In the book, Dr. Carson says if you are anxious we can tell everyone around you to adjust to your anxiety. But it doesn't give you tools to work through your fears. Thanks to Jennette Tamayo and the book "Finds a Worry," I highly recommend it to children dealing with severe anxiety.
   Great books for a child with separation anxiety
In the past, my daughter had seen a professional therapist for separation anxiety. She was 6 years old when she was killed. Her therapist first read Elizabeth Barrett's book to her in the first session. I looked at Amazon and bought it. My daughter absolutely loves this book and I think it could help any child with any kind of separation anxiety. Every Friday, her class has a parent read to the class. I read this to her class and I could tell they really liked it and were very interested in taking it again, Morgenthau said. A great book.
   Mixed up pages
I've read all the books, but this is by far the best. This copy had pages that were all mixed up and there was no way to take it apart and fix it without ruining it. Very disappointed.
   Had hoped for more
I have two anxious kids so I thought this would be great. It only focuses on worries that can be controlled, such as tests at school, and doesn't really give any ideas of how my kids can counter fears that aren't easily fixed.
   I feel like this book starts off ok
I feel like this book starts off okay, Hachette said. I wish we could give more solutions to the child to solve her own problems, Raymond said. Also, I feel like we may have gotten a book that was missing the last page. We assume she and the teacher worked through the worries, too, Mr. Dhaliwal said. I'd love to know if this is how the book ends, Mr. Rule told the judge.
