    As a counselor, I am always looking for new books and resources. I consider Hey Warrior my best find yet! The way it explains anxiety and why our bodies respond they do is spot on and incredibly easy to follow and understand. My kids love this book and I have even used it as a reference with my adult clients. Amazing book!!

    My 5 year old loves this book. He even told his therapist about his amygdala, its almond shape, and the “special” fuel it gives his body. It has helped him understand more of what is happening to his body. He is still just a touch too young maybe to understand everything, but he enjoys the book, thinks its funny, and gets stuff out of it that he can use He loves to talk about the jelly on his belly.

    My counselor just read me this over our remote session, and I genuinely could not have felt more seen or heard. I’m ordering the physical copy after I submit this review so I can read it during my next anxiety attack. Karen Young, thank you so much for a book accessible to all. This 25 y/o autistic individual truly appreciates you!

    My 6 year old struggled with anxiety this last school year, adding Hey Warrior to our reading cycle has been so helpful. He’s able to better understand what’s happening and loves telling everyone about his warrior.

    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.

    We really enjoyed reading the Hey Warrior. The stroy is nicely told and captured my six year old’s imagination. We were able to refer to it effectively when my daughter became anxious during a walk and I believe it helped her self regulate quickly.

    I bought all three books for my Counseling Practice. Hey Warrior and Hey Awesome have had the best response from children, teens and adults of any books I have in my office library. Even children who usually are resistant to any type of book will allow me to read to them because they love the illustrations. After reading these books we continue to reference what they have learned in later sessions. I had to order more keychains within 6 months because so many client’s wanted one to take one home. I would highly recommend these books even if you don’t work with children. Just be sure to order the keychains because they are a great tool for mindfulness, CBT, redirecting negative thinking or whatever your client is using to reduce the intensity of symptoms.

    Hey Warrior is such a fantastic tool to use in helping students who struggle with anxiety. As a school counselor, I have used this book with students and I have also shared it with family members. It is so empowering for young people to have information and understanding about what is going on in their brain and body. Thank you for such a meaningful book!

    Very helpful for my 10yo with anxiety. He has named his Amygdala Brian, and so far addressing him directly is helping. He has asked to reread a few times already. Thank you!

    This is a wonderful book. I just read it to my kids and they nodded and laughed along… I think it will be very helpful with facing their worries (and even mine). So far the Amygdala is called Peanut Brain and Meat Brain (?) – I think that’s a compliment.

    Following attending the course with Karen, I used this book to talk to my kids about their amygdala and how it can hijack their thoughts. As a result of these conversation my son will now fall asleep on his own. For the five years prior to that I had to be in the same room as him. This was a game changer for us. My son found a new confidence and I felt empowered. The book is brilliant and beautifully illustrated.

    I wanted to add to the positive words about Hey Warrior. I facilitate a social skills group with a group of middle school learning support students. I am always looking for books and other materials to use with this group of students. Hey Warrior was perfect! Beautiful illustrations, understandable language and a positive message about the ability to be in control of your emotions. Thank you for a lovely resource to help my students.
