Books for Kids with Anxiety

With all of the books that are out there it can be hard to know which of the many to pick on a certain topic.  Therefore, I have collected a number of good titles on the topic of childhood anxiety to help families out.  There are books for kids of all ages and a section just for parents who want to know how to help their anxious kid out.  Many of these titles are available at the library- check out www.jmrl.org.  Happy reading!
