The focus of the book is on building resilience and reducing anxiety in both preschool and primary school age children. Join Wally, Carli, the Confident Koala and Neffy, the dog, as they overcome Wally’s worries. Children will love the cartoon–like illustrations!The book aims to teach anxious children and their parents some skills to manage their worries. It also aims to teach parents how to prevent anxiety from developing in their children.
Parents don’t miss out! Dr Anne Chalfant has written a separate Parent Guide to accompany Wally’s story.
The guide includes 10 activities for parents to complete with their child to teach bravery and resilience and to conquer fears and worries.
The value of the book is that it combines clinical expertise and evidence based strategies with a fun and easy to read story-line.
