★ A fun, accessible, kid-friendly guide to safe, healthy, and productive screen time 
★ A gift for a kid getting their first phone
★ Ways to start conversations and set boundaries around social media use  

The on-screen world is super exciting—there are games, and new friends, and funny videos! But too much of a good thing isn’t always healthy, and not everything you see online can be trusted. Luckily, this book is here to help you navigate the highs and lows of screen time.

With mini-comics and fun illustration throughout, this friendly guide to being on screens and online in safe, healthy, and productive ways is a must-have for kids who spend time on phones, tablets, or computers.

    Kirkus Reviews, starred review
  • * "Amusing, edifying, and empowering, this should be required reading for all consenting, corporeal human beings."
    Booklist, starred review
  • Praise for The Worry (Less) Book:

    * "This entertaining, appealing, and friendly guide will be immensely helpful for readers of all ages.... Excellent and absolutely necessary."
    Kirkus Reviews, starred review
  • * “Excellent…. Brian’s sense of humor, evenhanded acceptance, and gift for analogies (anxiety is represented as a gloppy gray mass with googly eyes and stick arms) make the book fun and informative. Those who are prone to anxiety will find practical advice about dealing with it, while those less familiar with it will learn to recognize it in others and what they can do to help.… Easy to understand and entertaining.”
    School Library Journal, starred review
