Review

A much-needed book! I enthusiastically recommend it to parents, teachers, clinicians and, of course, to children. -- Theodore J. Tollefson, Ph.D.--Clinical Psychologist

What a delightful surprise! A very informative and wonderfully entertaining handbook for children that explores the causes and effects of stress and offers young people practical approqaches and techniques for dealing with stress factors in their daily lives. In today's pressure-cooker society, this book is a must. Children will love it. Parents will appreciate it. And teachers and counselors will recognize its value as a tool for affecting children's lives in positive ways. Don't just read it--USE IT! -- David Melton, Author of When Children Need Help

I am a counseling intern working with a head start type program that works with parents and preschoolers. I used this book to teach the children and parents about stress management! The book teaches children breathing techniques, guided imagery, and progressive muscle relaxation (all stress reducing activities that are used for adults).
For preschoolers, I skipped over some of the big words, but it has great illustrations and comparisons! It takes a difficult to understand concept and makes it understandable and managable for children.

This is a great book for kids to read to help them understand about stress and some of the causes of it. It is well written and geared for children to understand. I liked that it not only discussed what can cause them (kids) stress, but also explains about the stresses parents face. It offers suggestions on how to deal with stress. We had our son read this book to us and would suggest that you too read it as a family. A good read for the whole family. Humorous illustrations.

Dr. Moser gives kids an easy-to-understand look at stress and offers great coping skills in this delightfully illustrated book. I got this book for my children after our family moved to a new city and we were all showing signs of "Popping Our Corks". This book was GREAT! The kids (and mom and dad, too) are still using Dr. Moser's relaxation techniques/coping skills to deal with our ever stressful lives. It was such an enjoyable book, the kids didn't even realize they were learning valuable skills to use for a lifetime. I would recommend this book to anyone!

My son struggles with aniexty and stress. He is much better now due to books like this that help him put perspective on everyday life. Although he is feeling better we still enjoy reading this series of books, they make looking at and handling stress and stressful situations humurous and acceptable. It shows the children that it's okay to be stressed but here's how to handle it and here's what it's doing to you. I highly recommend the entire series.

Excellent book for children and families dealing with anger-management and strong emotions. It's a great book children can read on their own, have it read to them as well as an excellent book for families to read together. A must have book and must have series!

bought this series to help my out of control 5 year old to gain some emotional control. We have used all the books in the series and I am amazed the strides that we have made in the last two years since I purchased this series! Yes all kids have various problems but these books cover the real life scenarios that kids might encounter in words that they can understand. I would give this series 10 Stars if it was possible!

Lifesavers for sure!
