Phobias   

by H.W. Poole

"The word phobia is often used as a joke--a kid might say he has a phobia of spinach, when all he really means is that he dislikes the taste. But for people with genuine phobias, the condition is no laughing matter. Whether it's heights or crowds or plane travel, phobias can make life very difficult. This book introduces readers to the most common phobias and provides useful advice about how these fears can be conquered. Fear and anxiety are completely normal parts of growing up. Fear keeps us from climbing too high up that tree, while anxiety reminds us that we ought to study for that test tomorrow. But when anxiety gets out of control, it can rob kids of their educations, friends, and happiness. The set Childhood Fears and Anxieties takes a warm, supportive look at these feelings and how they can be managed. Each title in this series includes color photos throughout, and back matter including: an index and further reading lists for books and internet resources. Key Icons appear throughout the books in this series in an effort to encourage library readers to build knowledge, gain awareness, explore possibilities and expand their viewpoints through our content rich non-fiction books. Key Icons in this series are as follows: Words to Understand are shown at the front of each chapter with definitions. These words are set in boldfaced type in that chapter, so that readers are able to reference back to the definitions--building their vocabulary and enhancing their reading comprehension. Sidebars are highlighted graphics with content rich material within that allows readers to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives by weaving together additional information to provide realistic and holistic perspectives. Educational Videos are offered in chapters through the use of a QR code, that, when scanned, takes the student to an online video showing a moment in history, a speech, or an instructional video. This gives the readers additional content to supplement the text. Text-Dependent Questions are placed at the end of each chapter. They challenge the reader's comprehension of the chapter they have just read, while sending the reader back to the text for more careful attention to the evidence presented there. Research Projects are provided at the end of each chapter as well and provide readers with suggestions for projects that encourage deeper research and analysis. And a Series Glossary of Key Terms is included in the back matter containing terminology used throughout the series. Words found here broaden the reader's knowledge and understanding of terms used in this field.
