From Kirkus Reviews
This illustrated kids' book will help young ones handle their panic. The simple steps for identifying, acknowledging and releasing fear offer a useful method for helping younger children move past panic into a place of confidence; high-quality, vibrant illustrations provide an appealing mix of wide-eyed energy and bobble-headed attitude; colorful cartoon characters in a tidy five-step program for anxious pre-adolescents' anxiety can be transformed into a sense of personal power.
'This wonderful book is a must for all parents to help their children to normalize the symptoms of anxiety. What a gift to give to our children.' Dr. Harry Barry (MD, author and mental health advocate)
"We have read Scaredies Away as a bedtime story several times and my son, who is usually happy to let his sister do the bedtime story choosing, has requested it many more times." - Bury Family Life- The Family magazine for Bury, Lancashire UK
"I purchased this book because genetically, for centuries, my biological family has dealt with severe anxiety. I wanted this DNA issue to be understood and handled properly. For myself, my children and my grandchildren I knew there just had to be a solution! This book teaches us all, no matter the age, how to easily handle those scardy feelings we have without allowing them to control our lives and stop us from living our lives to the fullest! I give this wonderful book 5 stars! A+! Very entertaining, well written, educational and enlightening! It has now become my 4 year old Grandson's favorite book! He used to be so scared of the dark and to sleep in his own room, but now he takes the book to bed with him to remind himself that he is in control over those old scary feelings. Now he is happy and feels like a super hero! Excellent indeed!- Michelle Anne Cox-lomas-Review Maven

"Children get scared. And if their fears are not coped with in childhood, they follow them into adulthood and affect relationships, professionally and personally. I have worked with Barry's Panic Away program for some years and recommend it to individuals who needed additional assistance. I am grateful for this additional tool to have to share with global families on dealing with panic, fear and anxiety." - Judy Helm Wright, Author and Parent Educator
"The back of the book has very helpful tips and insights for parents to better understand anxiety which I think is awesome. I really, we really liked this book and would recommend it to any parent who is looking for a way to help their child cope with worry and anxiety." - -makemommygosomethingsomething Blog Review

"If only my parents had known what to do about my fears back then, I wouldn't have suffered for over 40 years. Scaredies Away! is a great place for parents to start. And kids will love the characters, colors and art. I loved that the older, popular boy said he had been scared too- letting the child know he is not alone." - Poly Meyers- Co-Founder of Break Free From Anxiety
