This gave my little guy a language to describe his feelings. He randomly came up to me yesterday and said, 'Mommy, I'm a five today.' I just about fell over. He has never been able to describe anything like that to me before. He also likes the calming methods laid out in the book.

This was a perfect gift for my child, who worries about stuff and sometimes needs a way to calm down. This isn't just a book, it has pages that need to be filled in, so it can be personalized. Your child's own worries can be listed out. I think the things the book says to do are easy for a child and can be done anywhere. We re-read it sometimes as a reminder.
When a child has anxiety, we may think he just has a behavior problem. Anxiety is a situation in our mind that people cannot see and we may not even know we have, but it makes us respond in ways that don’t seem very thoughtful to ourselves or to others. Kari’s book explains this beautifully to parents and professionals and provides thoughtful hands-on activities for young students. Drawing from Kari’s bestselling The Incredible 5-Point Scale (with M. Curtis), the book is designed to inform parents and professionals and then to help children move through ideas and tasks to help them learn strategies to manage their ‘worrying’ using cognitive behavioral strategies. The book can be used in both an individual and a group setting, including the general education classroom. After all, what person (child or adult) isn’t overcome by worry/anxiety once in a while?
