Soon Tuck is feeling in control of his life and focusing his energy on what he loves most...basketball!Using a positive, interactive approach, this book includes informative study guides, exercises to develop confidence and relaxation skills, and self-quizzes, all designed to help kids learn to coach themselves through everyday worry and stress.
