'This clearly-written, short book provides valuable information for family members, friends and teachers of children who are experiencing anxiety problems. It includes excellent and helpful summaries about different types of anxiety and suggestions about why some children develop anxiety problems and the type of treatment that might help.'
- Susan H Spence, Professor, School of Applied Psychology and Australian Institute of Suicide Research and Prevention, Griffith University

'Megan, who is ten, has serious anxiety problems... She explains about other kind of anxieties... There is advice for parents, friends and teachers on how they can help, a reading list (mostly american books) and a list of websites in the UK, the US, and Australia. This is one of a series of excellent information books on various health problems and disabilities, and should be of great help to children, their families and friends.'
