“The Worrying Worries is a great picture book for kids. Written in rhyme, the story is fun and upbeat. It’s full of entertaining and relatable shenanigans that engage and trigger giggles. Zehra Hicks’ vibrant illustrations sparkle with colour and the funky characters are joyful (even the Worry, which really is very cute). All this brilliantly disguises a story that deals with a challenging topic. Worry and stress is very real, for all ages, and if we don’t have strategies to deal with them, they can take over our lives and make things very hard for us. The Worrying Worries shows kids some simple tricks to help calm down and ignore worries when they start to shout too loudly in our heads. It also normalises worrying, which I love.” KidsBookReview
What happens when you get a Worry? They can follow you around everywhere, and they are HUNGRY. They feed on your fears and put sad thoughts in your head until they’ve grown so big, it can be hard to get anything done! Luckily, the Worry Expert knows exactly what to do.
