Although fears and worries are a normal part of childhood, anxiety can be quite distressing at times for children. In addition, there are many children whose fears and worries are excessive and who develop anxiety disorders which interfere with their lives. Using story books in the classroom has many benefits for the promotion of mental health and resilience for all children.

Impact and interest:

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
