Overview


More kids than ever feel worried, stressed out, and anxious every day. Their parents and teachers may not know—because kids don’t want to talk about it, or they don’t know how to put their worries into words. Their “secret stress” surfaces as stomachaches, headaches, fatigue, trouble sleeping, loss of appetite, and an inability to concentrate. These and other stress-related symptoms can have a negative effect on school performance, family life, and friendships.

From the best-selling authors of True or False? Tests Stink!, this book is a helping hand for kids and an eye-opener for adults. Reassuring words, silly jokes, and light-hearted cartoons let kids know they’re not the only worry-warts on the planet—and they can learn to manage their stress. A “What, Me Worry?” section describes the causes of stress and its physical and emotional effects. “How to Be a Panic Mechanic” gives kids ideas for dealing with stress and being stronger and more assertive.

Upbeat, positive, fact-filled, and friendly, this is the book on stress for kids and young adolescents.

From the Publisher

“Good advice and tips to manage a fast-paced day.”—Parent Council

“Witty, wise advice for kids about stress.”—ForeWord Magazine

A Scholastic Book Club Selection

Children's Literature
This self-help book is geared towards the middle grade child who is looking for some comical advice about relieving and/or avoiding stress. It has a stress test at its beginning so that the reader can self-diagnose and then proceed with the book's suggestions for relief. Humor runs throughout the text along with entertaining cartoons. The reader learns how to be a "panic mechanic," as well as learning ten useful ways to relax. Although the book is geared towards the young reader, the authors do recognize the need for parental involvement in truly understanding the complexities of stress and include a parents' guide at the text's conclusion. This is a helpful book for parents to have on hand and should be used as a supportive tool for a child experiencing stress. However, it is not a book that should be given to a child for independent reading or self-counseling. 2000, Free Spirit Publishing Inc.,
