The plushie amygdala is your very own warrior, there to protect you. Measuring 40cm tall, it has super-soft fur, a way-too-cute head, and a heart of pure courage. It hates asparagus, loves blueberries, and isn’t too keen on footwear. It’s brilliant to have around, and not just because it will never steal your shoes. Your… Read more »
My son loves this book! He named his amygdala and he sometimes talks to it. 🙂 A great read for both parents and children, I highly recommend it!

I LOVE it! ‘Hey Warrior’ will not only be a helpful book for children, but for adults, too. It’s so simply explained, but gives such an in depth explanation. Thank you. Thank you for explaining why we feel the way we do. Thank you for explaining that our strengths as anxiety sufferers are beautiful. Thank you for making anxiety less scary!

I have been reading this to all o the Pre-Primary classes at our school as they transition into the big school. They absolutely love it, especially when I bring "Clancy", my plush amygdala! Two of my favourite things ever are hearing 5 year olds say the word "amygdala", and having them come up to me in the playground to say "I've got this!". Such an incredible resource - thank you so much!!!

Thank you so much for writing this awesome book on this very important issue of anxiety that many people seem to dismiss. It has helped simplify the explanation of what this disorder actually is to kids and it is so well illustrated that it keeps kids of all ages engaged and interested in this difficult subject matter. Great read for both parents and kids. Every day is a struggle but tools like this are so extremely helpful. Thank you! ❤️

I have read this amazing book with my class this term and they've loved it. It's provided the students with the opportunity to share their experiences and to realise that anxiety isn't their fault but they can take control. My students really enjoyed naming their warrior and the book has given us all a common language to explain how we're feeling. Thank you for a quality resource. I'll continue spreading the word.

This book is amazing. We read it regularly with our girls and have all named our amygdalas funny names.

This is so important! Once my son learned what his brain is doing when his anxiety is taking over, he was empowered and able to manage those times better. The info has even helped me!

This book is excellent and highly recommended. I'm an adult who experiences the bodily reactions described in this book - only in the last few years have I really developed an understanding about it. How wonderful to have an accessible tool to use with children experiencing anxiety so they don't spend 30 years thinking there is something wrong with them like I did! I'm now a primary school teacher who has a student with anxiety in my class. I can't wait to share this book with him when we get back from school holidays!

Amazing book. I use this is a social worker and find it to be so helpful. It's the best book on explaining anxiety to children. I love how gentle and kind it is.

This is an incredible book written so that even my kindergarteners and a child with autism spectrum behaviors understand it and find it helpful. I have no affiliation to the author.
