Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - RevaBeth Russell
Kids have stress, sometimes more than adults realize. Stress can be result from trying something new or from the fear of getting into trouble or worrying about all the things they need to get done. Readers will learn some techniques to manage stress early and have a healthier life. The child will learn that there are good and bad types of stress. Bad stress can give them a stomachache or cause them to be shy or cry. With the adult reading this brightly colored, engaging book the child will learn many ways to beat stress such as eating healthy fruits and vegetables, exercising, or doing something nice for someone else. Reading this book to children could be very helpful, because this book allows the adult and child to discuss their stressors, which is a good management tool. The best part of the book is teaching the child the “Belly Breath.” It may look or sound silly, but this is an important skill in managing stress. Although the book says there are free resources for teachers online I could not find them. From pre-school to public libraries this would be appropriate for parents and teachers, as well as children. Reviewer: RevaBeth Russell; Ages 3 to 9.

    This book is divided into chapters, has a glossary, a section of suggestions to "learn more" and an index.  The storyline revolves around a little girl named Anna who is the goalie for her soccer team, has weekly piano lessons, daily homework and chores to do around her home.  She is feeling worried and anxious about all this responsibility looming before her.  As these worries pile up, nervousness overcomes her. How can she possibly get all this stuff done in time? It's game day and her homework is due tomorrow. She has to find ways to deal with the stress and tension in her life.  She discovers that she is not the only one feeling overwhelmed.  Everyone in her family has some form of stress whether it be mom looking after her baby sister or dad trying to get to work on time.  She learns about good stress (yes it does exist) vs bad stress which can cause head and stomach aches, biting of nails and not wanting to go to school.  She talks to her family about ways to control her anxiety,  like taking time out to play hard with her friends, having activities that are fun and feeling happy while she is away from her responsibilities. Family discussions and family hugs ease the feeling of isolation and aloneness that stress can cause. It is freeing to know that others around you feel the same way. This book is very beneficial because it is a perfect conversation starter for when you own child is feeling burdened by world obligations around her.  I recommend it highly.




    The illustrations are expressive and very kid friendly. I like the fact that stress was depicted as a cartoonish character, and even though harmful to you, was not made a scary visual for your child.
