The perfect companion to Julia Cook's Wilma Jean the Worry Machine picture book.

Anxiety is considered to be the number one cause of health problems in America. It is normal for everyone to feel fear, worry and apprehension from time to time, but when these feelings develop into extreme proportions, anxiety becomes a disability. The purpose of this activity book is to offer creative anxiety reduction strategies, and give children the tools they need to feel more in control of their anxiety!

Julia Cook, M.S. is a national award-winning children's author, counselor, and parenting expert. She has presented in thousands of schools nationally and internationally, regularly speaks at education and counseling conferences, and has published children's books on a wide range of character and social development topics. The goal behind Cook's work is to actively involve young people in fun, memorable stories and teach them to become lifelong problem solvers.

This book is so helpful to children who suffer from anxiety or excessive worrying. I have read this book to many children, ranging in age from 5-12, who were relieved to read that Wilma Jean (main character) experiences some of their symptoms, such as pretending to be sick so won't have to go to school. This activity book was so useful in developing coping skills to manage anxiety.


Easy guide to use with kids in the classroom setting. I have used this in my work as a family therapist and find the worksheets easy to make copies of to give as a hand out.
