This book addresses the issue of anxiety in a light-hearted and reassuring manner.
Charlie is an anxious dachshund who worries that something terrible might happen if he doesn’t keep to his daily rituals. After he is called upon to help rescue a friend and in the rush forgets his rituals, Charlie discovers that he doesn’t have to be ruled by them and that change can have really positive outcomes. Charlie’s character was inspired by Terry’s daughter, who went through a phase of daily rituals to help combat anxiety.
Terry became aware that it is a behaviour pattern which is common amongst children and indeed adults. This book addresses the issue in a light-hearted and reassuring way. Whether or not you are anxious, the story of Charlie is bound to capture your heart!
