Let’s fix this! The Playground Problem A Book about Anxiety by Tracy Packiam Alloway

This picture book story is one that children who experience anxiety will relate to.  It tells the story of Ruby who is quite anxious about doing her show-and-tell at school.  Her fears are realized when she has issues with her presentation.  What happens after this? That is the heart of the story.

Young readers/listeners will watch as Ruby re-groups.  They will see Ruby reach out to another child and how this helps her to cope, helps another child and leads to a friendship.  At the end of the book, there are pointers for adults and questions for class discussion.

All in all, this book may help to de-stigmatize issues for a child you know.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this book in exchange for an honest review.
