Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Spelman succinctly explores causes for a young child's worry and then shows positive ways to dispel negative feelings. . . Solid bibliotherapy." School Library Journal, August 2013

"This amusing but satisfying story will ease the worries of a nervous child or help more confident children to be more empathetic to the needs of a worried friend." Kirkus Reviews, August 1, 2013

School Library Journal
PreS-K—Spelman succinctly explores causes for a young child's worry and then shows positive ways to dispel negative feelings, such as telling an adult, being held, and listening to music. In double-page scenes, an anthropomorphic hamster expresses being worried about doctors, crowds, yelling, swimming, and more. The narrator's rabbit, cat, and dog acquaintances bring cheer and keep the topic light. The brief text and appealing illustrations broaden the book's appeal. Solid bibliotherapy.—Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA
Kirkus Reviews
Spelman and Parkinson continue their sensitive exploration of childhood emotions with this latest entry in their The Way I Feel series. An unnamed little guinea pig narrates, describing in just one sentence per page different situations that make her feel worried. She is worried when she isn't sure what is happening or when people argue or when she has to try something new. The charming illustrations extend the text by creating a believable setting for each sort of worry, using a variety of endearing animal characters. Though it isn't spelled out in the text, the reader can see that the little guinea pig is nervous about going to the doctor, afraid to get in the swimming pool and worried about the consequences of coloring on the wall of her bedroom. And she is very worried about going to school, sensitively handled with several pages of adult characters helping her get over her fears. The satisfying conclusion shows a more confident guinea-pig girl who understands her feelings and knows how to handle them. This amusing but satisfying story will ease the worries of a nervous child or help more confident children to be more empathetic to the needs of a worried friend. (author's note) (Picture book. 2-5)
