This is nice and simple, but I think would need follow up conversations/more in-depth stories about anxiety for many children

Actually, I can is Nicky Johnston’s third book that helps children deal with anxiety, following on from Go Away, Mr Worrythoughts! and Happythoughts are everywhere …. Nicky is the author and illustrator and self-published the first two books, but this new picture book Actually, I can has been published by Melbourne small press Rough Draft.

Having two young children myself, one who is three and does seem to fret a bit when things don’t go quite right, I was quite keen to see how Nicky tackled this

"Ohhh, I wish this was a chapter book," my 7 year old son said when I finished reading, Actually, I Can, to him.
What better recommendation from a child can you receive than the disappointed they show when the book is finished.
Actually I Can, written and illustrated by Nicky Johnston is a delightful story of a worrier and an adventurer. It includes many references to how bodies react when you worry.
This was a perfect discussion starter with my own little 'worry bunny' and a great chance to remind
