"With everything going on in our society today, it is becoming increasingly common to see children developing anxiety. Jimmy McMuggins addresses topical issues in a fun, light-hearted, and accessible way. It gives us a new avenue to explore these important ideas in our classroom, and as an elementary teacher, I know I'll be telling my colleagues and friends to incorporate this book into their year. Great job, Ms. Adams! We can't wait for more in the series!" - Mr. A, Centennial School District, PA
