Empower and Help Worried Kids

Allison Edwards, author of the best-selling book Why Smart Kids Worry, gives a glimpse into the ways worry whispers to young minds, and offers a powerful tool all children can use to silence those fears.

“Worry’s songs tie my tummy up in knots, and the things he says make my heart beat very fast. Sometimes he speaks in a whisper, and other times his voice gets so loud I can’t hear anything else.”

Worry and anxiety are currently the top mental health issues among children and teens. Children have a number of worries throughout childhood that will come and go. The problem is not with the worries themselves, but that children believe the worries to be true. With a relatable story and beautiful artwork, Worry Says What? will help children (and adults) flip their thinking when anxious thoughts begin and turn them into powerful reminders of all they are capable of accomplishing.

As a school counselor, helping children who worry is a big part of what I do regularly. I’m excited to now have this book as a go-to resource! With one in eight children being affected with anxiety disorders, it’s important to have kid-friendly literature to help them. With its adorable illustrations, helpful storyline, and tips for adults, this book is a must-have.

Love this book! I am a therapist that works with children and I use this book ALL the time to help explain anxiety in a way they understand. But it’s so cute that I’m sure any child would love it. The artwork in it is so cute and beautiful too!

My daughter gets in her head, she will escalate quickly when nervous. After reading this story I was able to remind her of the worry monster when she started worrying about giving a line in a play. She immediately recognized the worry monster getting bigger and we were able to have a more logical conversation about her fears and what would really happen. I’d recommend for any kids who get anxiety.
