The first point to make is that a child using this book must have his or her own copy. There are lots and lots of suggestions of things to do that mean writing IN the book, so this is not one for the library! It is sad that these days so many children need books about worrying, but so it is, and they are proliferating. This is a good one with some simple scientific explanations of how the body and the brain respond to worries and concerns and how to deal with them. A small black and white cuddly character is on every page and provides reassurance and advice, and the constant interspersed text and pictures are clear and concise. There are so many things to do, such as drawing patterns, dancing and being active, writing limericks or stories, scribbling, mindfulness, keeping a diary, yoga exercises, joining the dots, brain puzzles, origami, etc. It is all very positive and should provide many helpful hints and encouraging ideas for young minds, particularly those who worry excessively.
