The Worrying Worries


Do you ever worry about your worries? This lively rhyming picture book explores what happens when children encounter a worry, and some simple strategies to tame them. Everyone has had a worry at some point. Worries can be awful pests, and they hate to see you happy. They can follow you to the library, the park, and back home. They might whisper mean things to you, cause stomachaches, or keep you up at night. But you don’t have to keep your worries. In upbeat rhymes and engaging illustrations, this book shares some simple exercises children can practice to stay calm and banish those pesky worries for good.
