Loppy is a LAC, or a "Little Anxious Creature." He's good at focusing on what could go wrong and never stops worrying. The enemy of the LACs are the Calmsters - when one party wins a battle, the other shrinks Curly the Calmster just wants Loppy to think differently about his worries. As Curly and Loppy battle it out, Loppy learns that maybe he can manage his anxious thoughts after all. Lessons of a LAC gives readers unique ways to think about common emotional difficulties while teaching them the right words to reassure themselves when they are worried. Written by clinical psychologist Lynn Jenkins, who has published previous works for adults and children, Lessons of a LAC is a valuable resource for every child to help guide their emotional development.
