Children's Corner: Bats in your Belly with author Dawn DePasquale
Did you know that children get anxiety, just like grown-ups, but sometimes even worse? "Bats is Your Belly" introduces you to Layla, a little girl who just finished her first day of school and is full of the worries. But her worries are bigger than just mere butterflies in her stomach: she has bats in her belly! Join Layla and her parents as they try to figure out how to help her feel better—and get rid of those awful bats.
"Bats in Your Belly" is an anxiety self-help book intended for parents and their children that gives them hands-on ways to manage feelings of worry and how to improve stress tolerance over time. The book features easy-to-understand language and bright, vibrant illustrations to grab the reader and transport him into a dancing, whimsical world. During the story, the reader gets to watch Layla’s family as they try to help her to identify her worries and teach her kinetic activities to manage these feelings. Join Layla today and any day the worries start to get to you and dance all your bats away!
