Designed for ages 9-11, the book aims to teach children who suffer from anxiety, stress or anger about the fight, flight or freeze response in their bodies and what can trigger it, and helps them to understand that it is something that everyone experiences. It also includes ways to manage the stress reaction and reduce feelings of shame. It is an invaluable resource for anyone supporting children who are easily triggered into anxiety or anger, including parents and carers, support workers, teachers, and therapists.

This book is very easy to read and understand. I think it would work well for carers to have a quick read for ideas and understanding of what's in the book, and then read together or share the ideas with children. Older children would be able to read this alone and try some of the ideas out for themselves. This would probably be a good book for classrooms too, as it's quick and easy to understand.
