"My 5 year old has been having some anxiety and excessive worry lately over numerous things like worrying about thunderstorms, tornados, rockets going up (we live on the Spacecoast so it occurs a few times a month) and even scorpions. It seems as though she hears someone say something, sees a commercial, etc and then she just latches on to this idea until she can't sleep. She starting asking me before bed about if there would be a rocket tomorrow or a tornado, do scorpions live here etc. I bought this book in the hopes that she would indeed utilize this mantra. I am happy to report that it seems to be working! Whenever she is worried about something, I make sure that we read this book before bed. She reads along out loud as I read the line, "I will be okay." I think she likes the idea of "reading" as much as I like the idea of getting this idea through to her! I definitly recommend this book" - Amazon
