"This is an excellent book for all children and especially those experiencing anxiety and stress. It describes worry and anxiety and offers a resolution all in one. Children can easily relate to the characters and their feelings and it can be used to help children face and overcome their anxieties. It also teaches children how to pay attention to calming and reassuring voices from others and then integrate those messages into their own inner dialogues."--Klaybor & Klaybor Psychotherapy Services
"A pair of friendly insects experiences a series of worrisome events, but each has radically different reactions. . . Grasshopper shows a sensitive acknowledgement of Cricket's fears, when she wraps her arms around Cricket while he cries. . . The backmatter essay on 'Children and Worry' by two psychotherapists, intended for adult readers, explores why children (of an undefined age) may experience worry and offers a bulleted list of suggestions with sample dialogue."--Kirkus
