What makes this a winner for me:
- Gives some specific examples of what if, I can’t, and I’m scared thoughts
- Has a supportive and validating friend
- Instead of focusing on coping skills (which is also a great thing to do sometimes), it focuses on doing things even of they make us nervous/not letting nerves get in the way
To me, this book is a great fit for kids whose anxiety causes them to miss out on fun stuff, important opportunities, etc. It also would be helpful for kids who have anxiety with new situations and large groups of people!
