Lessons of a LAC is an essential resource tool, presented in an engaging picture-book format, to help children manage their worries and anxieties. Through the characters of Loppy the LAC (‘Little Anxious Creature’) and Curly Calmster, kids discover a useful way to think about their anxieties — the first crucial step in managing them. This is the first book in the gorgeous ‘Lessons of a LAC’ series, designed to give children ways to think about and manage common emotional difficulties.
