This book app, reviewed in print with 5-stars by Amazon.com customers, is a delightful way to introduce complex concepts to children about complex emotions like anxiety and obsessive worrying. As a digital app it provides a unique experience, with light enhancements that are nicely tailored to the narrative.~ Carisa
