What Do I Do with Worry?

,

Young Willow is a worrier. She’s just moved to a new neighborhood, and with it comes a new lineup of questions and doubts. What if there are tornadoes here? What if I trip getting on the bus? What if my dad loses his new job? What if a star falls out of the sky and lands on my dog?

Sometimes silly but always real, Willow’s worries keep her from enjoying her new home, from resting well, and from working with classmates. Thankfully, she has wise parents and some new friends to help her along and to teach her the biblical way to deal with her emotions.

Today’s world can be overwhelming to children, who are experiencing worry and anxiety at younger ages and unprecedented levels. Dr. Josh and Christi Straub—authors, leaders, and family advocates—are passionate about giving parents knowledge and resources to help their children navigate these emotions. The couple offered their wisdom and relevance in their first picture book, What Am I Feeling? and they continue to do so in this follow-up board book, matching a fun story with practical lessons and memorable mantras to help kids not only face down their worry today but as they grow into tomorrow as well.
