The Coping Kids is an easy-to-read book designed for the youngest of readers. It follows six kids dealing with everyday emotional struggles (anxiety, anger, low self-esteem, trouble sleeping, sleepover anxiety and bullying) and how they overcome their biggest challenges with the use of effective coping skills. Ellis, a licensed therapist, hopes that young readers can see themselves in the characters who are all dealing with something different.
