"I am so lucky to have come across this book! I am a speech therapist working in the United States and am CONSTANTLY looking for social stories to help the children that I work with. I’ve had yet to find a story addressing anxiety until now! This book not only provides the children with a character who is very relatable to them, “Dan”, but also teaches various strategies a child can use to help them calm down. The book’s message is wonderful, the strategies are helpful, and the pictures do a great job depicting how Dan feels. I’ve lent this book out to other speech therapists that I work with, and they’ve found it to be very useful in treating their kiddos as well. If you work with a lot of children with anxiety, or if you have children of your own who deal with anxiety, I would highly recommend this book! You will not be disappointed!" ~M Copeland
