This interactive board book teaches kids and parents the 5-4-3-2-1 anxiety coping method. Toddlers and preschoolers often struggle with emotions like anxiety, fear, and sadness because they lack the maturity to address, process, and communicate their hardest feelings. But counting down and focusing on the five senses can help calm and conquer any fired-up emotions. Through lyrical rhyme and whimsical illustrations, kids can practice counting, learn the five senses, and redirect their big feelings.

Toddlers and Preschoolers follow an upset baby bear through his daily routine. He is guided by his mama to focus attention on his senses God. By observing the outer world, the baby bear learns to manage his inner world. Once calm and focused, the baby bear's mama reminds him that God cares about what he is feeling.

You Count! reminds kids that God gave them emotions, and no matter what they feel, they always count to God!
