This book is intended to be read with a child or group of children to facilitate a discussion about anxiety. When someone faces potentially harmful or worrying triggers, feelings of anxiety are not only normal but necessary for survival. Anxieties can occur when thinking about work/school, money, family life, health, and other critical issues that demand a person's attention without the 'fight-or-flight' reaction. The nervous feeling, or butterflies, before an important event or during a challenging situation is a natural parallel of the original 'fight-or-flight' reaction. Anxiety about being in a car accident, for example, means that a person will instinctively check surroundings to avoid danger.
