Todd Parr is a superb children’s author. His honest, straightforward manner in speaking to children through his books is refreshing and fun. One of his latest books, The Don’t Worry Book does not disappoint. He lays out the reasons a child may be scared: maybe it’s thunderstorms or the dark or maybe they are scared mom and dad won’t come back. Then gives them gentle, practical advise to combat their fears (practice deep breathing or talked to a loved one). This book would be especially helpful for a child who suffers from anxiety. Parr lets the child know there is no stigma with anxiety and gives them a road map to help.
