Gift Ideas for an Anxious Child

Review for 365 days ..

This book is just so wonderful and I’m delighted with it. It’s very easy to use and I feel it truly has such a great concept behind it to help kids learn to relax and even us adults too. It’s been designed really well and I really like the layout, style and colours in the book as it’s very engaging and appealing to my kids. I think it’s important to work on this type of emotional development in my kids as it helps them develop their own emotional intelligence which is something I strongly believe in.
I think it’s also beneficial because it helps my kids reflect on their actual feelings and empathy whilst learning the importance of having that calm feeling. I think the book is excellent quality, it’s strong, sturdy and durable and a fab size. It’s not too big or bulky or too heavy either. I think the thing I like the most about this book is that it gives me a good and balanced mix of daily affirmations, quotes and activities so it’s not the same thing each day. I think the value for money is excellent and I highly recommend this book.

Gift Ideas for an Anxious Child don’t come much better than this.
