Superpowered: Transform Anxiety into Courage, Confidence, and Resilience
Renee Jain and Dr. Shefali Tsabary
River Dog Review:
This book – part-inspiration, part-instruction manual, part-workbook – is what every child and adult needs to read NOW. It shows us we’re not alone in our anxieties (especially in our world today!) and reminds us/teaches us the skills we need to not only make it through the day, but to actually thrive in life by tapping into our superpowers of courage, confidence, and resiliency.
Not all anxieties are the same, and the authors are aware of that. We each have different anxieties about different things in life, and our feelings manifest themselves in different ways, too. This must be why the book offers many different activities for us to work through and different methods for us to try applying to our daily lives, to see what will work best for our individual needs.
There were so many moments that reminded me of how I had felt as a child, and many other moments I identified with even as an adult! No one is too old or too young to start learning these skills, to think through these exercises, and to harness their power, rather than letting their anxieties take over.
The perfect tool for children facing new social and emotional challenges in an increasingly disconnected world! This how-to book from two psychology experts–packed with fun graphics and quizzes–will help kids transform stress, worry, and anxiety. Give it to fans of The Confidence Code for Girls and Raina Telgemeier’s Guts.
Now more than ever, kids need to feel empowered as they work through anxiety, overwhelm, and uncertainty brought on by the world around them. With its helpful, hands-on suggestions and tips, SUPERPOWERED will be embraced by every kid with insecurities, worries, and anxious thoughts.
Renee Jain (founder of GoZen!) and Dr. Shefali Tsabary (New York Times bestelling author and Oprah contributor) make readers the superheroes of their own stories. They introduce a toolkit of easy-to-understand methods for recognizing anxious behaviors, identifying the root causes of worried thinking, and realizing that strength can be found in reclaiming one’s inner superpowers.
With the help of humorous artwork and interactive elements, readers find their P.O.W.E.R. (an acronym that inspires mindfulness and resilience practices) and gain lasting mental strength.
