Wendy L. Moss and Robin A. DeLuca-Acconi. APA/Magination, $14.95 (128p) ISBN 978-1-4338-1335-1
“Even when you can’t change the pressures you are facing, you can change how you react to them,” write psychologist Moss and social worker DeLuca-Acconi in their introduction to this guide to handling the stresses that can accompany school, homework, and tests. Over eight chapters, the authors show readers how to recognize the symptoms and types of stress, and then how to combat them through organization, time management, and other tactics that include breathing exercises and study strategies tailored to different kinds of learning. Checklists, q&a sections, step-by-step suggestions, highlighted motivational statements (“There is no one best time to study. Find the time that works best for you”), and brief chapter summaries combine to reassure those readers for whom even spending time with a book about academic pressures might cause anxiety levels to rise. Ages 8–13. (Aug.)
