Alex and the Rabbit helps kids learn to cope with anxiety
For many young children, fears and concerns may grow to a point that their anxiety can become disproportionate to the matter at hand. When a child allows their fears to take over, they can deprive themselves of the experience of a joy-filled life. Author Monica Dumont addresses the issue of anxiety in her book, Alex and the Rabbit, in a very simple way that young children can embrace and understand.
When Alex and his bunny go outside they become separated for a brief while. Both Alex and the bunny become fearful for a moment, but then they remember a technique taught to them which can help alleviate their fear so they are able to think and act more calmly.
Alex and the Rabbit helps put anxiety in a perspective that children will relate to, "because many times what seems like a problem is not a problem at all."
This book is highly recommended and has earned the Children's Literary Classics Seal of Approval.
