Reviews

A good starting point to encourage children to discuss their anxieties and fears. It may also help children to realise that many children suffer with anxiety.--Little Parachutes Interesting, funny, brilliant and fantastic.--Books for Keeps The book prompted a lovely discussion and was a great way for [my son] to articulate his emotions. Fantastic book - road tested and heartedly recommended!--The Fostering Network This is an excellent resource for those working with anxious children. The children love the story and the beautifully bright illustrations are sure to engage even the most reticent child.--Amazon reviewer A compelling picture book.--Write Away

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.
