Cute Book Mar 15, 2006
This was a real cute book with a fun way to teach kids about how to deal with their worries. My Daughter really enjoys it and the pictures are really cool.
Good and practical advice! Nov 10, 2005
Adults worry about many things and sometimes even desire to return to what they believe is the carefree childhood years. But life is stressful, even for children. They worry about things just like adults do. Some of their worries are about monsters under the bed, a school bully or maybe even starting school. Other worries may be little worries, but worries nonetheless.
Is a Worry Worrying You? addresses the worries of children and helps the child deal with them in a way that they can identify with. If a herd of elephants are thirsty when they arrive for tea, just give them lemonade instead. It looks at worry and solving problems creatively.
Is a Worry Worrying You? is a book best read by children with an adult. The adult can helpfully explain any sticking points. The illustrations are quirky and show what I like to call the "worry monster" on the pages. The drawings evoke a feeling of worry without being scary. I believe my little children will enjoy them.
Armchair Interviews says: Is a Worry Worrying You? is a wonderful way to spend time with the special child in your life and allay the worries they all have at one time or another.
A picturebook for children that combines whimsical artwork with honest and practical advice for dealing with worries Jul 6, 2005
Is A Worry Worrying You? is a picturebook for children that combines whimsical artwork with honest and practical advice for dealing with worries - from everyday worries about bullies and the first day of school to not-so-common worries such as a rhino wandering the neighborhood! A "Worry" is depicted as a big blue monster with no manners, that stays like an uninvited guest - but only as long as one lets it. Is A Worry Worrying You? shows young people means of dealing with worries, from confronting it directly or working on whatever is worrying one, to focusing on happy thoughts, engaging in activities like playing with cards or baking a cake, or talking with friends. Highly recommended.
A Teacher's Review May 2, 2005
I am a first grade teacher who had the opportunity to read this book to my class. All of the children enjoyed the story. They loved looking for the Worry. Most importantly, this book generated a lot of discussion about things that worried them and how they could make their worries go away or find alternative solutions. I highly recommend this book for children of all ages.
