I’ve got a puppy running around inside my head. His name is Ollie. Sometimes my puppy is quiet, curious, or scared. And sometimes he gets excited . . . too excited! Ollie’s emotions can get overwhelming for both of us, so I use my breath, words, and actions to calm myself—and my puppy—right down. Do you have a puppy inside your head, too? Puppy in My Head helps children identify and deal with anxiety in an age-appropriate comic-style format.
