Navigating new and uncertain situations is difficult for most children. This empowering story is about overcoming worry and apprehension, as well as building courage and confidence to try new things. For Nora, worry comes in the form of a pesky little bug that tries its best to stop her from being brave when meeting new friends. Using rhyme, this story addresses symptoms of worry and provides coping strategies that help Nora to find and embrace her "inner strong". This story is the perfect springboard for talking to children about worry. It aims to inspire courage, foster resiliency, and promote inner strength in their lives no matter how difficult the challenge.
