I cannot recommend this book enough. I am a speech pathologist and think it is great to read a book that talks about decreasing anxiety in a positive way. It is an easy read for a parent to read with their child.
As an Educational Therapist, I work with children with Learning Disabilities, many of whom experience anxiety as a integral part of their lives. Nervous Nellie has important, yet easily understood, information for all children who live with anxiety. I believe Nervous Nellie must be read and discussed often, and over time, with young children who are either about to enter treatment or who are already in treatment. It is written in a straightforward, easily understandable, yet thorough, style. This book is a wonderful resource for parents because it gives them words to help explain to their children what they are experiencing in their lives, or what they might experience once they begin treatment. I believe it will help children who experience anxiety see themselves in a more hopeful light.
This is a fantastic book..easy to read for kids.. They can relate to Nellie very nicely.. A very genuine character indeed!!! I am a guidance counselor and my students have read and enjoyed it.. Highly recommended.
I love the way that anxiety is described as it is easy to understand as other reviewers have commented. The only thing I am not fond of in the book is that Nellie is treated with pharmacological medication and as a therapist, I wish the book would have focused more on behavioral techniques to control anxiety.
