Knots in My Laces, Knots in My Tummy is a great title for an informative book. The theme is clear and easy to follow throughout the book. My six-year old granddaughter was able to make the connection with each scenario and she loves the illustrations. They are colorful and age appropriate. I wholeheartedly recommend the book.”

Angella Nunes, Grandparent

“As a mother, I appreciate the way Ms. Butler’s text doesn’t dole out answers but presents various facets of anxiety in a way that opens the door for children to discuss their own situation. I wish this book had existed when I was a frazzled young mother struggling to understand what my preschooler was feeling.”

Sarah Downing, Mother

“Thank you for this amazing book. I appreciate how you shed light on anxiety because it’s one of those mental illnesses that not many people speak about but is common. I believe that both parent and child or anyone who’s unfamiliar with anxiety can get an understanding of how to at least start the conversation. Everyone who reads Knots in My Laces Knots in My Tummy will benefit from reading the book.”

Francine Spencer

”I would recommend Knots in My Laces, Knots in My Tummy to anyone looking to learn more about the signs and symptoms of anxiety in young children. The story makes it an easy conversation starter between parents and children looking to explore this topic. (Not to mention the great resources for parents at the back of the book!). Anxiety is so common among children, but there are so few resources about its manifestation in young children. Butler’s book bridges this knowledge gap in a fun, easy to digest way.”
