Overview

Have you ever felt a sense of dread and worry creeping over you?

That might be the Panicosaurus coming out to play…

Sometimes the Panicosaurus tricks Mabel's brain into panicking about certain challenges, such as walking past a big dog on the street or when her favourite teacher is not at school. With the help of Smartosaurus, who lets her know there is really nothing to be afraid of, Mabel discovers different ways to manage Panicosaurus, and defeat the challenges he creates for her.

This fun, easy-to-read and fully illustrated storybook will inspire children who experience anxiety, and encourage them to banish their own Panicosauruses with help from Mabel's strategies. Parents and carers will like the helpful introduction, explaining anxiety in children, and the list of techniques for lessening anxiety at the end of the book.

A great resource for teachers, parents and students with Autism struggling to control overwhelming feelings created by everyday events. The illustrator created characters which are a delight for the eye and add charm to the story. Panicosaurus is more than a storybook. The author includes a helpful introduction to the topic of anxiety, additional strategies to reduce stress and anxiety as well as preventative strategies. The story also promotes inclusion and demonstrates peer acceptance of children who handle anxiety in their own unique way. Panicosaurus belongs in every school library along with the author/illustrators other book The Red Beast:Controlling Anger in Children with Asperger's Syndorme.
