Hey Awesome

If kids with anxiety could see themselves the way we see them, they would feel so much bigger than their anxiety. They would feel so much bigger than everything. ‘Hey Awesome’ explains how the same brain that can make them feel anxious sometimes, also comes with amazing strengths. It also includes powerful tips for children on how they can manage their anxiety. First we let them know how awesome they are, then we give them what they need to feel it for themselves.

‘Hey Awesome’ can be shipped worldwide.

    This book was recommended by a children’s councillor, and I’m so glad we got a chance to read it.
    In a world where anxiety is viewed as a bad thing, hey Awesome lifts children’s spirits up instead. It focuses on all the ways our kids are strong and amazing, and that they have the power to do amazing things. This means a lot to children whose worries are trying to tell them otherwise, or to those who feel like anxiety holds them back.

    Awesome books. Also, funny – which keeps kids engaged while they’re learning. There are several talking points in the books – good to note. Thank you for your work.

    My 8 yr old son has the Hey Warrior book as well as this book. Both are beautiful to read. Hey Awesome is currently laid out on our kitchen table for him to enjoy over breakfast before school each day. THANK YOU for providing such empowering resources that lift our kids up even in the face of challenge. We love how validating they are!

    Lovely, my son read this book to me on the way back from our holiday, we talked about every page, and even laughed in a few parts (we are big on humor in our house so it was amazing to have this part of a sometimes difficult topic”.

    This is a wonderful book – full of warmth and empathy for the difficult journeys that some people are on. My 7yo daughter loves it. She now keeps talking about her amygdala expertly. Thanks!

    I love these books! What awesome resources. They are so on point and the pictures are welcoming for children of all ages.

    Another great book! Such a great way to explain anxiety to kids and making them feel brave and proud of themselves. It inspires them to continue showing their strength in ways that they can understand.

    I absolutely love this book. What I love about it the most(apart from the light humourous touches and fun illustrations) is how it reframes anxiety and speaks to the positive traits associated with having anxiety. It’s an important message.

    Bought this for my 12 year old autistic daughter who really struggles with life…. We read it together and even I felt uplifted! Such a wonderful resource, so glad I purchased a copy

    This is such a positively framed book, with insight into anxiety and helpful ways to reframe it and deal with it. I love it so much!!

    A wonderful, beautifully illustrated book about anxiety – and not just for children. It’s a joy to read, a source of peace and calm as well as wisdom.

    I just bought this for my 10 year old daughter. I bought Hey Warrior and the plush doll about 2 years ago, and it has been really helpful for her. We are on online school and she was having some self-confidence issues with some parts of the distance learning. I ordered Hey Awesome and it has been wonderful for her. It explains what is happening in her brain in a way that she easily understands. And even though this is a picture book, and she usually reads non-illustrated chapter books these days, it was still interesting for her and the right level for her to understand and make sense of her emotions and anxiety symptoms. I am so grateful for these books!

    I bought both these amazing books. I have wanted them for quite some time.
    After receiving them, I had a chance meeting with a foster Mum, who was in the process of adopting her 9year old foster son. She mentioned how he had endured so many struggles in his short life.. I was so moved by his story, that I gifted them to her to give to him,..
    Imagine my absolute delight when she mapessaged me to say he loved them & had placed the little note I wrote him under his pillow that night…my heart sang.
    Thankyou for creating such AWESOME books.
    Sincerely
    Simone

    Thank you for these amazing resources. What a gift to any family learning about what anxiety is and what amazing qualities people with anxiety have and the incredible things they can do!

    Hi there, I love these books. My youngest two children are 17 and 20 and they both have anxiety. They couldn’t believe how it so accurately describes the feelings they would get. So thank you.

    I took it to school for my Year 4 class and they loved it as well. I introduced it to our staff and the mindfulness teacher promptly ordered one for every class in the school. It has been a super addition for working with our kids. So thank you again.

    A little while back I purchased the Hey Awesome book in hardcover but I can only find it in softback. How do I find the hardcover version please. Also do you do a pack that includes both books in hardcover along with the plushie? I would like to buy them for my grandchildren.

    Thank you very much

    I just received “Hey Awesome” in the mail. I am a fellow Psychologist and love this book! More importantly, I am a mother to a highly anxious 9 year old boy. It’s as though this book was written for him! It is absolutely brilliant.

    As a Psychologist we have accessed so many wonderful resources to support our sons health, however i truly believe this book is one of our best resources.

    Thank you Karen Young for writing such a great book for children who experience anxiety. I love your “awesome” strengths based perspective!!!
