Often face with kids’ anxiety and still have no idea how to deal with children’s big emotions and feelings? Try this entertaining picture book and learn how to help children cope with their worry and stress.

All children worry from time to time and it is a normal part of growing up. But, when anxiety becomes overwhelming, it can greatly affect kids’ behavior. It may lead to a feeling of stress, exhaustion, isolation and many others. It is very important to be aware of these emotions and to know how to deal with them in a healthy way.

This activity book captures children’s attention, provides kid-friendly entry points into understanding the essence of the feeling of anxiety, and is a perfect tool for educating them about how to overcome worries, fear and phobias.

This cute book about Little Nick:

  • contains lovely illustrations and a lightly rhyming storyline.
  • helps children recognize and manage their anxiety by interacting with animals in a funny way.
  • provides tips and techniques on what to do when your children feel worried, nervous, anxious or scared.
  • delivers important messages aimed at improving kids’ self-regulation skills.
  • teaches children to understand their emotions and feelings and to improve their emotional intelligence.

This storybook is a continuation of Nick’s adventures from the World of Kids Emotions books’ series. The first book of the series became an Amazon Bestseller.


Even if you have tried everything, this book is perfect for gaining a deeper understanding of children’s anxiety and how to help kids control their worry. We highly recommend it for preschoolers, primary school students and toddlers. It is an excellent addition to a toolkit for parents, teachers and counselors.


My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

In this delightful story, Nick and his dad are going on a camping trip! Nick is excited about going but then he starts worrying about it until he’s feeling anxious. The symptoms of anxiety are listed which is good so that children can understand that these naturally occur when they’re feeling anxious.

When Nick and his dad get to the forest, Nick goes for a walk while his dad puts up the tent. He meets several animals who tell him what they do when they’re feeling anxious and by the time he gets back to the campsite, he feels great and is ready to have a good time with his dad.

The story is told in rhymes and the illustrations are cute and colorful. I had to laugh at the cute picture of Nick’s dad’s beard. It’s so 2020! I am Stronger than Anxiety is bound to keep the attention of children plus they learn to recognize anxiety and different ways to cope with it.

About the Author

Being a mother of two kids Elizabeth Cole very well understands that childhood is a great period of life filled with a tremendous amount of different and often changing emotions. Since the time Elizabeth received her master’s degree in psychology from University of New Orleans in 2008, she fully devoted herself to the research of kids, understanding their needs as well as their true emotions. Her five years period of working as the school teacher very much improved Elizabeth’s knowledge and motivated her even stronger. Finally, all of her experience inspired Elizabeth to write a series of children’s books.
