The Worry Box (Suzanne Chiew)
Anxiety seems to be a growing topic among children. This could be a good discussion starter.
I loved the page where they were climbing a tree because you have to turn the book sideways to see it all. Makes the tree look so big!
Murray Bear is supposed to go to the waterfall with his sister, Molly, to meet a friend, but Murray is worried. What if its too LOUD? he cries or Or what if I get swept away! So Molly tells him about her special worry box. When Im worried about something, she says, I write it down, and then put it inside. She offers to help make one for Murray, and he takes it on their journeybut will it really help?
