The chemicals that our bodies make when we are in danger prepare us for action like running away or fighting. Anxiety is when someone acts all scared without there really being any danger. People who are really anxious can't concentrate or have fun because they are worrying. Some people even feel sick to the stomach.
I would recommend this book to kids who have too much anxiety and need to learn how to control it. "Please Explain 'Anxiety' to Me! Simple Biology and Solutions for Children and Parents" would also help the friends of kids who have anxiety problems to understand what is going on.
