Stress Can Really Get on Your Nerves! Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

More kids than ever feel worried, stressed out, and anxious every day. Their parents and teachers may not know—because kids don’t want to talk about it, or they don’t know how to put their worries into words. Their “secret stress” surfaces as stomachaches, headaches, fatigue, trouble sleeping, loss of appetite, and an inability to concentrate. These and other stress-related symptoms can have a negative effect on school performance, family life, and friendships.

From the best-selling authors of True or False? Tests Stink!, this book is a helping hand for kids and an eye-opener for adults. Reassuring words, silly jokes, and light-hearted cartoons let kids know they’re not the only worry-warts on the planet—and they can learn to manage their stress. A “What, Me Worry?” section describes the causes of stress and its physical and emotional effects. “How to Be a Panic Mechanic” gives kids ideas for dealing with stress and being stronger and more assertive.

Upbeat, positive, fact-filled, and friendly, this is the book on stress for kids and young adolescents.

Synopsis:

A helping hand for children and an eye-opener for adults, this book blends reassuring words with jokes and cartoons to help show readers they aren't the only worry-worts on the planet. The authors describe the causes of stress and its physical and emotional effects and give children ideas for dealing with stress and being stronger and more assertive. Illustrations.

About the Author

When Trevor Romain was 12, his teacher told him he wasn't talented enough to do art. By accident, he found out 20 years later that he could draw. Since that lucky day, he has written and illustrated 20 books for children. In addition to writing, illustrating, and speaking at schools, Trevor is a board member of the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation and can often be found on the cancer ward at Brackenridge Hospital in Austin, Texas, doing his rounds as "Doctor of Mischief."

Elizabeth Verdick is a children's book writer and editor.  She lives in Minnesota with her husband and their two children.
